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"show more
