The Quilt Encyclopedia Illustratedby Carter Houck
There is more, much more, to a quilt today than its simple original function of keeping one warm in bed. The homey, useful coverlet has evolved into a work of art, fit to hang in a museum or command six-figure bids at auction. The first comprehensive compendium on quilting to be arranged alphabetically for ease of use, The Quilt Encyclopedia Illustrated covers 260 topics from 'Armor' (illustrated with a 16th-century English padded jerkin) to 'Yo-yo' (a colorful pattern of the 1930's. Some 270 illustrations, including 200 in full color, accompany the entries.
