SUMMARY- The chapter titled "The Art Quilt" isn't just a measly 3-5 page explanation of what an art quilt is but an engrossing 46 page overview of the history of quilting. I ended reading this one cover to cover, it was so absorbing. If you want a feel for the history of your craft, this is a fantastic find. Oh, and its interesting to flip through the art gallery section - you'll be fascinated by some and "meh" on others, but it's a nice snapshot of the art quilt scene of the mid-eighties.
