For the very first time, all the winning quilts in the world's most prestigious juried show are photographed, described, and collected in one ultra-glorious book--provides endless inspiration for those who practice this extremely popular craft. Every two years, the International Quilt Association presents the largest and most esteemed quilting competition in the world. The show brings together professional and home quilters alike, all entering their finest pieces. Anyone who wins a prize has true talent, creativity and skill--and here are the quilts that emerged victorious in all the specialty areas. There are variations on tradition patterns, such as log cabin or Amish Star, as well as exquisite examples of Japanese quilting, Trapunto, and many other more unusual forms. While no instructions accompany the eye-opening images, the projects can be reproduced for those who want to try their hand at making them, and the artists offer helpful background on each piece. Quilters will treasure this collection--and wait eagerly for the ones to come from future shows. Rita Weiss is the author of the classic and bestselling 7-Day Afghans, as well as 24-Hour Quilts and many other books. She serves on the board of the International Quilt Association.
