Library Journal
In the 1970s, a number of families from towns and cities all over the country moved to a rural area of North Carolina seeking a simpler lifestyle. Feeling that quilting is "what one does" in the country, several of the newcomers got together to plan a presentation quilt for a new bride. That quilt was the beginning of an association that has lasted more than 20 years and has produced close to 50 group quilts. Although this work does include three of the group's beginners' projects, it is not primarily a pattern book but rather a gallery of community quilts that includes background information, full-color photos, and working notes as well as a practical, step-by-step method for planning, organizing, and making a group quilt. In the parlance of the era, the beauty and imagination of these quilts is simply mind-blowing. Most public libraries will want this one. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
