About this title


Includes information about terms, techniques, tools, and patterns of quiltmaking, descriptions of famous quilted pieces such as the Names Project Quilt commemorating AID's victims, and tips on quilt care

From Library Journal:

This pioneering encyclopedia by the editor of Ladies Circle Patchwork Quilts should appeal to the general reader who has been introduced to the world of quilts for the first time (perhaps through visits to museums or quilt shows) and is eager to learn more. Illustrations, which are well chosen and clear, include color photographs of outstanding examples of the quiltmaker's art. In fact, the 270 illustrations--more than one per page of text--overshadow the written information. This excellent general encyclopedia could have been even better if short bibliographies had been included to direct the reader to more in-depth information on each topic and if entries had been linked together more skillfully through expanded indexing and cross references. Even so, readable style and well-chosen illustrations make The Quilt Encyclopedia Illustrated an excellent purchase for general collections.
