The book is very interesting. All of the different artists make the book unique. The book is meant for fun, not to teach you any techniques.

I liked this book because it focuses on one artist per section, not skipping from artist to artist within a chapter. In this way, the reader can grasp more completely each artist's work process and philosophy. Recommend!

Each quilter describes how they accomplished their art piece. A wonderful book to inspire and motivate quilt artists into trying the various techniques described. I especially enjoyed the one on using various shades of netting to achieve different shades of skin tones.

I bought this for my mom who is a quilter herself and she absolutely loved this book. If you have a quilter in your family I guarantee that they will love it.

This could have been a superficial treatment of some artists who had no control over the final product. Instead, it's an in-depth, historical and inspirational survey of twenty artists, their work and their techniques. The artists must be thrilled with it. The photography is first-rate, and the interviews produced some fascinating accounts by the artists about how they came to their present-day work. Kudos to Ms. Gillespie for this informative and beautiful book!

item was delivered on time and absolutely met my expecatations!
Have you ever dreamed about becoming an artist? How about an art quilter? Glimpse into the lives of 20 art quilters and you'll enjoy reading about their journeys, discoveries, and inspirations. I found the book by Ms. Gillespie to be very interesting and down to earth. I quite enjoyed getting to know these quilters a bit more and perhaps made some discoveries about myself and my dreams as well.
