What would happen if sets of vintage quilt blocks were divided among a group of artists, and each was left to create new quilts from them in her own style? In answer, this book presents 117 quilts made from six sets of vintage blocks by 19 talented quilters across America. It is a collection of contemporary quilts with a vintage twist, shown in 301 color photos. Each new quilt is unique and reflects its maker's style and interests.You can be inspired to create your own quilt block challenge using the tips and guidelines provided. Curator/author Mary Kerr and her band of artists present the challenge to all, art quilters and traditionalists alike.
