"A beautifully photographed book that is equal parts eye-candy and reference tool, worthy of being read and flipped through again and again--and at over 400 pages, there can be no doubt that you will find something new and inspiring each time." - Quilting Arts Magazine "In this second edition of "Masters: Art Quilts," Sielman has assembled works from some of the finest, most sophisticated and provocative quilt artists from around the globe to create a book that every art quilt aficionado will want to keep for inspiration and reference. Whether you are a quilter or someone who admires fiber art, you will definitely want this timeless treasure for your shelves!" - Pokey Bolton "Great - it's an encyclopedia of major quilt artists. This is a book to savor over several evenings and then dip into over and over again. This is a wonderful and extensive collection of some of the best of our time. An important addition to an art book collection." - Elizabeth Barton "As a participant in the history of the art quilt movement, reading this book was like visiting old friends, seeing past work and appreciating the recent work and innovation of the artists.

Snippets of their creative thoughts connect the maker with the viewer. "Masters: Art Quilts, Vol. 2" is a must have on your book shelf to visit over and over again. Bravo to Lark Books for continuing this series of books on the Art Quilt." - Yvonne Porcella"I enjoyed the first volume in the series, but I think I like this one even more.
