If the quilt on the cover isn’t enough for you to lay out some cash, then I don’t know what would make you buy a book on quilt history.
To be very honest, until I became involved with the Alliance for American Quilts, and their steadfast resolve to document all of our quilts and we, as quiltmakers, I only had a fleeting interest in the history of quilts and those who made them. I now find myself not only buying these kinds of books, but actually reading them! And, oh my, what a wealth of knowledge has clobbered me over the noggin! Who knew?
It is humbling to me to realize that the very soul of the quiltmaker goes into the handmade quilt — all of our quilts — whether it be an original design or a Stack n Whack!
The photos in this book are delicious, cupcakes! I enjoyed the text, too! It is well worth the $$$ to have it in your collection.
Now, I don’t know the book’s author, Robert Shaw, from Adam, but if you’d like to buy a copy on Amazon.com just click —-> HERE. Of course, you can order a copy from your local quilt shop and support your local business. As a matter of fact, my buddy Toby Preston of Kindred Quilts, sells it in her shop, where I first saw it.
Do what you love, cupcake! xoxom
