Every once in a while you have to see a quilt made out of clothespins, roofing nails, and fishing line just to stretch your thinking about the possibilities of the medium. Contemporary Quilts is the catalog of the tenth biennial Quilt National exhibition held at the Dairy Barn Cultural Arts Center. Six hundred entrants submitted 1,254 quilts to this juried "art quilt" exhibition, of which 83 of which were chosen for display. Each quilt is pictured in full color with a short description and comments by the artist. Recommended for academic libraries and textile arts collections.
