books of interest
while reading 'victoria' magazine for april of 97,i noticed a wonderful article on quilter janet bolton(pp86-89). she works in miniature with small scraps of fabric, and the resulting works are rather primitive and humble. she has a new book that has a garden theme titled "in a patchwork garden" (quilt digest press / available thru ntc contemporary publishing co. (800)323-4900). she was first featured in april 1990 victoria.
