As implied by the title, this collection features quilts that have won prizes at fairs, quilt shows, and other competitions. The patterns range from prizewinners of the early 20th century to easy yet colorful patchwork-style wall hangings to exquisite appliqu�d full-sized quilts. The full-page photos of each design give an idea of the finished product, the step-by-step directions are easy to follow, and the patterns include all components, including appliqu� templates. An overview of appliqu� and foundation piecing techniques is also included. An excellent choice for any collection of quilting books.
