In early American times, almost every house had a patchwork quilt, sewn together from hundreds of pieces of fabric. Each quilt was unique, with different combinations of fabrics and colors and a distinct pattern. But who developed these patterns? And what did they mean?
The author's fascinating text describes many of the different quilt patterns, placing each in historical context. From the Anvil to the Zigzag, this is a creative look at a meaningful folk art tradition and an important period in American history.
