Once Upon a Quilt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A patchwork as rich with history as any well-worn quilt, this now-classic anthology collects the stories so may quilts tell - tales of making do and creating beauty out of scraps, stories of starting anew and passing down a legacy stitched with the lore of ages. Bringing together anecdotes, essays, and memories about quilts, quilting, and quilt history, this book has something for everyone who has ever pieced a quilt together or admired a quilter's handiwork. Ranging form the amusing to the poignant to the enlightening, the selections include historical meditations form quilting authorities like Merikal Waldvogel and Sandra Dallas, laugh-out-loud writing on quilting obsessions from humorist Ami Simms, a charming essay on passing quilting knowledge from "Quilter's Newsletter" columnist Helen Kelley. Illustrated with a glorious collection of quilting photographs and paintings, vintage advertising and pattern booklets, this is the quintessential Quilter's Companion.
