Books in Print

Year Acquired: 1999

2nd Floor, Conference Room B

Created by staff members Denise Griffin, Amy Johnson, Daksha Mistry, Karen Rodde, and Amy Ruyle in celebration of the new library building, Books in Print is constructed from strips of various cotton prints designed to look like books on a shelf.

DGPL staff members organized and quilted the piece over the course of 9 months. The top of the quilt contains a batting and backing and is machine quilted between each book and shelf to achieve the desired effect. A photo of the library mascot, Miss Mouse, was photo-transferred onto fabric and appliqued onto a block. The names of the quilters, as well as the titles of various books, can be found in the design.
