Masterpiece quilts and Master quilters--both are honored in The Quilters Hall of Fame. The book profiles more than forty of the quilting world's most influential people--from early twentieth-century quilt designer Ruby McKim to quilt curator Jonathan Holstein to contemporary art quilter Nancy Crow. Lavishly illustrated with one hundred glorious color photographs of their quilts, plus historical photographs, ads, and pattern booklets, The Quilters Hall of Fame is essential for every quilter's bookshelf.

The Quilters Hall of Fame is a prestigious organization honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of quilting. Merikay Waldvogel, a nationally known quilt authority, is an author, curator, and lecturer who has served on the board of directors of the American Quilt Study Group and the Alliance for American Quilts. Rosalind Webster Perry is the granddaughter of Marie Webster and is an author and quilt lover in her own right. Dr. Marian Ann Montgomery is an independent museum professional with a special interest in textiles. www.quiltershalloffame.net

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
