Praise for Peaceful Pieces

"The most striking aspect of the book is its quilted, pieced-cloth artwork, and the borderless pages allow maximum impact for Hines’ bold, expressive visual statements…A beautiful poetry book on an ever-relevant theme."—STARRED, Booklist

"Often Hines needs just a few words to convey oceans of meaning…The beauty and painstaking detail evident in each quilt brings the book's vision a stitch closer." —STARRED, Publishers Weekly

"The quilts that accompany the selections serve to expand upon their themes and create an interesting contrast to the text. Children will be fascinated by the painstakingly intricate stitching, bold colors, and poignant imagery." School Library Journal

"Hines' art is always beautiful; she illustrates her work with astonishing quilts, reproduced full-size, in a variety of designs: In this work she uses black-and-white reverse patterns, mosaic-type images, photographs made into quilt patterns and lots and lots of gorgeous color." —Kirkus Reviews
 
"This is indeed a treasure trove of beauty and inspiration." —BookPage
