Format: Paperback
This book is only about the size of a magazine but it tells how to buy, repair, finish, and copy quilts from the 1930's. There is a little history of the era and pictures of quilts made then too. For someone like me who inherited a trunk full of 30's vintage, unfinished quilts, it was s fountain of useful information.

Sara Nephew has focused on the craft of the American woman and explained what our grandmothers were doing. This helped me identify old quilt designs that I had inherited. She also gave great directions on saving a quilt, identifying fabrics, and basic problems with some unfinished quilts. I will keep this book handy for future reference.

besides the excellent history and care sections, this wonderful little book has great photos of pieced and applique quilts made in the 30s and the templates and instructions for them.

most of the quilting books i've found that claim to present 30s designs offer traditional 19th century blocks made with feed sack prints or simplified 30s blocks that lack the true 30s character. some of the designs in this book are challenging to sew but many quilters like a challenge.

i would recommend this book to any quilter. it's a great value for the price and better than many more expensive books.

I was very disappointed in the book. If I had seen more of what was in the book, I would not have ordered it. I thought it would have had more quilt patterns. I am not interested in templates to cut quilt blocks.
