SUMMARY- I would love to be able to list the quilts and their designers - but there's 500 of them. If there is someone you need to know is in there, email me through my contact page and I will be happy to look it up for you. There's a ton of amazing work in this book - I ended up getting absorbed by it for several evenings as I went through it like I do any artbook. My only disappointment was the lack of any bio on the artists other than their home town and state. A paragraph on each of the artists would have made the book perfect - but I certainly am very happy to have come across a copy of this. I had a couple of favorites, but I believe strongly that with this book you should really pick out your own without my two cents. They can be found pretty inexpensively on the used market - I bought mine for less than $10 including postage. That's a steal.
