    Lovely colourful photos and interesting text. Would have loved more information on some quilts but sadly the quiltmakers didn’t plan on their quilts being around for many generations. They made them for use and loved ones. Enjoyed it immensely.

    What a Documentation Book should look like!, July 30, 2001

    This review is from: Quilts: The Fabric of Friendship (Schiffer Book for Designers and Collectors) (Paperback)

    This book contains more photographs of antique quilts than any other book pertaining to the various quilt documentation projects, with just the right amount of text. WELL DONE in every way!

    This is a beautiful book with wonderful pictures and text. It is “one of the best” new books on the market. The pictures show lovely old quilts–some are old patterns that a person will recognize and some a fascinating combination that will be new to most quilters. Definitely a book worth owning!
