    Ellie Senkowitz, Libby Lehman, Porter & Fons, Alex Anderson, Bethany Reynolds, Eleanor Burns. I slid down without reading the other answers, though I did see Carol Doak on someone's post. Mary Kay Ryan and Susan Damone Balch are Vermont quilters who are gaining national notoriety, I think. This is fun!

    It is like authors, I don't pay much attention. So, the only one I know is one my aunt mentions frequently and I have more than one book of and that is Eleanor Burns. can't name a single other. I did see John Flynn and did not know he was a famous quilter. I met him at a show once where he was selling that funky frame.

    Or, how many have you actually met, taken a class with, had dinner with, or entertained?
    I am very grateful for my years of exposure to the Houston International Quilt Festival, for serving as the program chair for the large Fort Texas guild, for owning a large shop that many guild speakers visited, and for the large number of wonderful, well known quilters from Texas in general that I met over the years.

    And of course there's Holice Turnbow who helps us out right here on the QB. Do a google on him if you aren't familiar with him.
