The Harwood Steiger Book Project blog is a stream of consciousness about the development of a book on Steiger's silk screened textiles. This blog represents the process of documenting the hundreds of silk screen designs produced by Steiger and his wife, Sophie, over a 40 year period in Tubac, Arizona, where they had a studio and helped to make the community of Tubac a place where Art Meets History. This is only a small part of what I have learned about the man and his work.

Quilting is what I normally do. So, when I saw these two quilts listed on Ebay, I had to capture them for posterity. It appears that they were both made by the same person using similar fabrics to complement the Steiger designs. One uses a section of the border print, Six Quails. Incidentally, I just made a two piece dress out of a deep teal and black Six Quails. But, it's already packed for the trip to Oregon tomorrow. I'll post it when I get back. The other quilt is made with a dress panel. It's an interesting use for these Steiger pieces. If you are interested in acquiring either of these, log on to Ebay and search for Harwood Steiger. You will find the two quilts and a scant few other examples. Just thought you'd like to see these interesting uses of Steiger prints.
