    Review quote
    The Quilters Hall of Fame, founded in 1979, honors the accomplishments of the quilt-making community, including quilt historians, collectors, and researchers. To introduce the organization and its members, Waldvogel and two other quilt authorities collect short biographical pieces, along with samples from private collections and the Quilters Hall of Fame museum, which opened in 2004 in Marion, IN. As expected, styles range from traditional Americana from the 19th and early 20th centuries to modern, abstract designs. There aren't any projects here, but this is a fine introduction to quilting's traditions and future as well as an excellent overview of the accomplishments of luminaries. - Library Journal
    Back cover copy
    Masterpiece quilts. Master quilters. Founded in 1979, the Quilters Hall of Fame celebrates those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of quilting--quilters, authors, historians, and other quilt enthusiasts. Inductees include Carrie Hall, Marie Webster, Cuesta Ray Benberry, Georgia Bonesteel, Barbara Brackman, Helen Kelley, and many more. The organization is housed in Marie Webster's beautiful colonial revival home in Marion, Indiana, which has been designated a Landmark of Women's History by the National Park Service. This book features 42 of these quilting legends who have shaped the art--from early twentieth-century quilt designer Ruby McKim to quilt curator Jonathan Holstein to contemporary art quilter Nancy Crow. Accompanying these profiles, you'll find a showcase of great quilts with glorious color photographs of the artists' work as well as historical and current snapshots of their lives.
