Quilts – A Beautiful History

Quilts – A Beautiful History by Zaro Weil is a very informative little book on quilts and quilting. It’s a good one, not only for quilters but those interested in buying our quilts. I especially like the quote in the introduction:

Every individual is part and parcel of a great picture of society in which he lives and acts, and his life cannot be painted without reproducing the picture of the world he lived in.” – Harriet Beecher Stowe, Old Town Folks, 1869.

That is so true.

I also like the first sentence of the introduction: “Quilts have been a high-spirited expression of American women over the past 200 years.”

We quilters have a long and proud history. Ask for the book at your local library or quilt shop or click on the book cover.
