To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles first visit to the United States, 150 artists chose a different Beatles song to portray as a 60 x 60cm fibre art quilt. Inspired by the vast array of Beatles' music and lyrics, they have merged talent with imagination to create beautiful works of art. Accompanied by 169 images, this book provides a personal narrative from each artist. Discover the stories behind their quilts and why certain songs were chosen. Read some of the personal memories the artists have of The Beatles, and hear many descriptions and details related to the making of these unique pieces. Behold the magic that happens when artists are challenged to use songs and fabric, lyrics and thread, and love for Beatles music combined with a passion for stitching. This book is a great resource for both art quilters and music lovers and a wonderful keepsake for the Beatles' fan.
