Art & Inspirations. This book leads reader through Ruth B. McDowell's progression into becoming one of today's most prominent quilt artists. Full-color reproductions of her finest works, drawn from collections all over the world, illustrate this volume and offer an immensely sensitive and personal look at her work.

Visions. This catalog features all 80 quilts from the "Visions" exhibition in San Diego in 1996.


Both of these books are great inspirational material. If you like the "different" types of fabric art available, you'll love both of these books.

From what I have seen, art quilts are just as pretty as any other quilt but the material and the embellishments are not able to stand up to daily use.  That having been said, when a quilter puts his or her mind to sharing their vision in an art quilt, it is notable.  There isn't a color too bright or a fabric too soft to show their soul to the world.  If I were able to do an art quilt that is what I would do.  Just put it all out there.
