By the Virginia Consortium of Quilters, edited by Barbara Tricarico
This new book anticipates Virginia's 400th anniversary in 2007 by presenting more than 270 beautiful historic quilts and ephemera in more than 430 color and vintage photographs. From quilted armor of the 17th century to crazy quilts of the 19th, these personal, family, and museum treasures include homespun work of slaves and the fancy work of freed women and first ladies. The eight Virginia-born U.S. presidents are each represented here, with work from George Washington's great-great-grandmother to quilting by Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. The contents derive from the study of more than 3,000 quilts meticulously examined by the Virginia Consortium of Quilters' Documentation Project. This book is an important contribution to quilting history and Virginia heritage and will be inspirational today for enthusiastic sewers everywhere.
