A must-read for Civil War enthusiasts and quilters seeking accurate information on reproducing Civil War quilts. The stories of fourteen extraordinary Civil War quilts and the women who made them bring you face to face with the drama of war and its effect on thousands of lives. Some of these quilts tell love stories, others relate the determination of women seeking an active role in the war effort, but all represent efforts to support the fighting men. Each of these quilts tells stories of struggle and survival. The book contains patterns and information for making "block by block" or "potholder" quilts, with 40 traceable quilt block patterns with templates for hand piecing or rotary cutting for machine piecing. Also included is information on reproduction fabrics and how to participate in modern soldier-related community service quilting. This second edition also features a lively discussion of the Jane Stickle quilt, one of the most famous quilts made during the Civil War. With patterns rich in personal histories and strong visuals, author Pamela Weeks continues to deliver, and then some.

Alabama Quilts: Wilderness through World War II, 1682–1950 is a look at the quilts of the state from before Alabama was part of the Mississippi Territory through the Second World War—a period of 268 years. The quilts are examined for their cultural context—that is, within the community and time in which they were made, the lives of the makers, and the events for which they were made. Starting as far back as 1682, with a fragment that research indicates could possibly be the oldest quilt in America, the volume covers quilting in Alabama up through 1950. There are seven sections in the book to represent each time period of quilting in Alabama, and each section discusses the particular factors that influenced the appearance of the quilts, such as migration and population patterns, socioeconomic conditions, political climate, lifestyle paradigms, and historic events. Interwoven in this narrative are the stories of individuals associated with certain quilts, as recorded on quilt documentation forms. The book also includes over 265 beautiful photographs of the quilts and their intricate details. To make this book possible, authors Mary Elizabeth Johnson Huff and Carole Ann King worked with libraries, historic homes, museums, and quilt guilds around the state of Alabama, spending days on formal quilt documentation, while also holding lectures across the state and informal “quilt sharings.” The efforts of the authors involved so many community people—from historians, preservationists, librarians, textile historians, local historians, museum curators, and genealogists to quilt guild members, quilt shop owners, and quilt owners—making Alabama Quilts not only a celebration of the quilting culture within the state but also the many enthusiasts who have played a role in creating and sustaining this important art.

"The New York Quilt Project is dedicated to a remarkable group of artists who created a significant body of folk art through the use of traditional tools: needle, thread, and fabric. Through tireless handiwork and creative energy they have warmed generations of beds and hearts, and in the process have left a magnificent legacy." "The Museum of American Folk Art has played a leading role for many years in bringing American quilts to the public's attention by collecting and exhibiting them in the United States and abroad. Thus, it became a mission of the Museum, as a New York institution, to initiate the New York Quilt Project and locate, document, preserve, and create an archive for the quilts of its home state." "New York Beauties, containing 150 color plates and 56 halftones, is the ongoing progress report of the work of the Project, and it is the collaborative effort of Phyllis A. Tepper, director of the Project, her co-author, Jacqueline M. Atkins, and Lee Kogan, Research Coordinator for the Project. In addition to its wonderful illustrations, New York Beauties provides a fascinating social history of New York State as a stimulating background for a deeper appreciation of the quilts which, after all, are both documents of history and witness to the lives of ordinary beings, for written across their surfaces are stories of personal relationships within families and communities. The astonishing art of quilts and their family warmth inevitably touch us all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
