Jim Shore's Quilting Inspirations

It’s pretty easy to see I’m a big fan of quilts! I grew up in a family of quilters, both my mom and grandmother were masters at it. So I’ve been around them all my life. Quilt blocks and design are a staple in my work, I can’t imagine my art without them.

I love the story behind them, the skill it takes to sew them, and most of all, the desire to create something beautiful that drives the people who make them. Here’s a video of me talking about part of my collection of vintage quilts. Each one in my eye is a work of art, a masterpiece. Take a look and I think you’ll see why.

God Bless,
Jim Shore
