You may see this quilt at the link above. This prestigious list was the result of “The Ultimate Quilt Search” which was a collaboration of 4 non-profit quilting organizations: The Alliance for American Quilts, The American Quilt Study Group, the International Quilt Association, and the National Quilting Association. The special magazine “The Twentieth Century’s Best American Quilts” was produced by Primedia Special Interest Publications to commemorate these great quilts.
