List of the 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century
.

100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century:
In 1999 Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and the International Quilt Festival, along with Quiltmaker and McCall's Quilting collaborated to determine the 100 best quilts of the twentieth century. A book of these quilts was published by Quilters Newsletter, and a special museum quality exhibition was held at the International Quilt Festival in 2000. A PBS documentary film was also made at this event.

Corona 2: Solar Eclipse by Caryl Bryer Fallert was chosen. Click here for the full story of this quilt.
