This work is the result of a three-year project carried out by the Quilters' Guild in Britain, the aim of which was to create the first national index of quilts in the country made prior to 1960. There are over 150 colour illustrations, including examples of: wholecloth quilts; pieced quilts; military, Bible and signature quilts; Red Cross quilts from Canada (sent as war relief); American quilts from the 1930s; applique panels from Egypt; and embroidery from China. With chapters written by some of the leading authorities on quilts, quilting and textiles, this book provides both a record of historical interest and a source of inspiration to contemporary quiltmakers.
