Editorial Reviews

Review

Eighteen essays on nearly forty group-made quilts from the nineteenth century provide an excellent history of American group quilt efforts. The excellent color photos of the finished quilt pieces blend with eighteen essays on the quilts to reveal quilt-making efforts and achievements. -- Midwest Book Review
