Format: Paperback
If quilt history is your thing then you must add this to your library. Several Iowa quilters are featured with heart warming stories of each featured. My favorite Iowa Quilter Sara Miller is one featured. Also a heart warming story about a quilting group.

I received this book for Christmas, it was on my wish list! It took me two nights to go through it. Each Chapter is about an Iowa Quilter or Quilt Group. This book makes you wish you could meet each of the women and men that were highlighted. My only disappointment with the book was that there were no pictures of the wonderful quilts that were described in each chapter. The photos came from the author's collection and that of an Iowa Museum. This book is a good book for anyone who enjoys quilt history.
