"An artist is truly blessed, able to take pleasure not only in the creation of art, but also in the emotional response elicited when it is viewed."

Quilt Artist Randall Cook's quilts have appeared in publications and exhibits nationwide.  "I Remain" is still remembered today for the part it played in the "Shocking Quilts" feature in Mark Lipinski's Quilter's Home.

 The artist!

Stitched

Stitched is a fun-filled documentary following three quilters, including Randall Cook, each racing to complete their entries for the International Quilt Festival, the largest quilt show in the nation. The Houston show draws more than 50,000 quilters including three artists who created some controversy with their work.  Visit the website at http://www.stitchedfilm.com/home.html
