Gone to the (Quilt) Movies Lately?

I've just come across this new movie due to have it's premiere tomorrow, April 8th, and I want to see it! It's a story about three famous people who are friends and includes healthy doses of art, passion, and scandal. Sounds like a blockbuster, right? Well, hold on a minute--it's actually about quilters! The film is a documentary that follows Caryl Bryer Fallert, Hollis Chatelain, and Randall Cook as they create their pieces to enter them in the 2010 Houston quilt show competition. An intriguing part of the puzzle is that "quilting legend Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first to win a major prize for her quilt made with a sewing machine. She mentored Hollis Chatelain who caused a stir when she won an award for a painted quilt. And Hollis mentored Randall Cook who sparked controversy with his quilt of a male nude."*

Now, this won't hit all the movie theaters across the country, so thankfully you can order the DVD. Click here to go to the official website for the movie to get playing cities/times and for info on how you can get a copy of your own.
