    Aja gave me Art Quilts: A Celebration for Christmas. Again, this book has no patterns or project sheets. It is a catalog of 400 art quilts from 1995-2003 arranged by year. I love it! First, I am happy that they are not telling me how to make these quilts. Second, I love the organization. Someone (a librarian, maybe??) got the publisher to organize the quilts in a way that makes sense. This organization makes it easy to see how art quilts have evolved. Third, I like the selection of quilts chosen. I can appreciate the wide variety of techniques, including photograph type quilts, when there are a wide variety of techniques shown and you can see the photos in context. I hope the publisher does well enough with this edition to do future updates of this book. Buy Art Quilts: A Celebration to show support!

    What is a quilt? That is the question I was left with when I read this book. Few of these pieces use the conventional method of seams to assemble their creations. None of the designs shown helped me with the project I am working on as I am looking for a conventional quilt with a modern design. I did like how the book introduced each artist providing information on their inspiration. The illustrations are excellent although a close up of many of the pieces and the quilting used would have been helpful. If you are looking for two dimensional fabric art this is the book for you, but if you are looking for contemporary quilt designs that are sewn with seams this may be a disappointment.
