"At nearly four pounds, this book is dense with color and inspiration. But the real value lies in the space devoted to each of the 40 artists whose works are included--up to a dozen quilts per artist. This allows readers to see the scope of each quilter's career and to take away a clear understanding of today's art quilt movement." - Quilters Newsletter
