This is the quintessential collection of an entire year's worth of America's best quilts. The Quilt Art 2006 Engagement Calendar has been designed with a sophisticated flair and with a necessity for practicality. Annette Baker and Klaudeen Hansen have scoured the country, hunting for examples of modern technique and style -- including patchwork, applique, contemporary fabrics, hand and machine quilting, as well as an engaging mix of quilt art and traditional pieces. They present their 54 favorites in this calendar. The calendar's handsome design includes weekly spreads with ample room for appointments, as well as a quilt per week. The background text provides information on the featured quilt, the quiltmaker, size, and technique. Klaudeen and Annette have also provided information on the inspiration of the quilt -- form, color, pattern, and more.
