Yvonne Porcella A Memoir—Defining Why
Yvonne Porcella was a visionary in the art quilt movement, founder of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) and an award-winning artist whose works are in museum collections across the U.S., including the Smithsonian Institution, de Young Museum of Art, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, Phoenix Art Museum, and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. A prolific author of ten books, she tells her personal story for the first time here, transporting us through the early days of wearables and art quilt history to tales of ancestors whose contributions to California agriculture were pivotal to her treasure-trove of experiences as a traveling quilter and teacher and about the inspiration behind many of her quilts. This book is a joy to read! Witty, poignant and inspiring!
