Summary

Summary

For almost 25 years, the biennial Quilt National show and traveling exhibit have showcased the best and most exciting quilting being done today, from mainstream to "out there, " from boldly innovative to beautifully conservative.

The Best in contemporary Quilts presents all 86 quilts accepted into 1999's prestigious, juried show. The quilts are rich with metaphors and stories, color and imagination. These are quilts viewers with new insights and new detail with every viewing.

Each quilt is presented in full color, in a one- or two-page format, and in accompanied by comments and technical details from the artist.

The incredible variety of styles and techniques in each Quilt National offers an inside look at where the art quilt today and where it's going in years to come.
