Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Carrie Hall, an early 20th-century Kansas quiltmaker, had an ambitious plan. She set out to preserve America's quiltmaking heritage by collecting every known patchwork pattern and piecing one cloth block for every pattern. She spent years collecting patterns and piecing the blocks. In 1935 her collection, photographed in black and white, appeared in The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America. Made between 1900 and 1935 and now housed in the Spencer Museum at the University of Kansas, these blocks are a rich source of information for quilters, quilt historians, and quilt collectors. In compiling Carrie Hall's Blocks, Havig has made Hall's collection even more accessible to the modern quilter. The first section is a gallery of Hall's blocks, including color photographs, the name of the pattern, museum accession number, and measurements of the original block. For the second section, Havig has chosen 200 additional blocks for fuller treatment. For each of these blocks there is a color photo, a piecing diagram, and full-size templates so that today's quilter can enjoy making many of Hall's historic blocks. This important reference source for the quilt historian and collector is recommended for both academic and public libraries. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
