40 Art Quilters from around the World
414 pages of sumptuous, beautiful, fascinating quilts
I've had this book for a couple of months now and have spent hours pouring over the beautiful quilts.  They are all so inspiring.  I want to be a fly on the wall of each quilter and see how they create such beauty - no not a fly because a fly can't ask questions, I'd rather be standing over their shoulder watching and then be like a 3 year old and ask as many questions as I could get away with: "Why did you chose that color scheme?  Why that process?  Why not this process?  What kind of paint do you use? What kind of fabric/batting/thread do you prefer? Do you keep a journal? Do you have a plan when you create?" Thankfully a number of these questions are answered in the brief commentary on each artist which does help to satisfy some of my curiosity.  I think I will be opening this book again and again when I feel the need for inspiration, or just want something beautiful to enjoy.
