"Investigate the evolution of quilting in America with one of the most comprehensive histories ever published. The book moves from the discussion of the historical nature of quilts to current efforts at quilt preservation. Features include more than 200 full-color photographs and an encyclopedia of quilt styles, from applique to crazy, pieced to art, scrappy to whole cloth. Essays by Jean Ray Laury, Patricia Cox and Alex Anderson, to name a few, highlight the complexity and beauty of America's quilting tradition."
