In a burst of creativity, Sharyn Craig and Pamela Mostek - both highly respected and popular quilters - challenged each other to make eight quilts using specific design and colour guidelines.

"Quilt Challenge" not only features gorgeous and inspirational full-colour photographs of each of the finished quilts, but also gives readers a rare glimpse into the creative process of two top designers.
