Editorial Reviews

Review

Includes many illustrations of surviving slave-made quilts, some utilitarian and others wonderful examples of the seamstress's art. (Washington Post Book World)

Stitched from the Soul is an interesting study showing how African culture influenced American quilting as well as commenting on the life of the slave. (Library Journal)

Format: Paperback
A most spellbinding read! The arthor writes of the quilting parties between the plantations where the slaves, and sometimes the Mistress (slaveowner) helped to make quilts and or provided material/remnants, so every slave had a quilt for the winter. They were allowed to cook at theses parties in the main kitchen, slaveowner providing the food. I was so enthralled with this book I was motivated to use the arthor's description of slave quilting to create a few miniature quilts, when possible using the same fabrics, for a project. I was fortunate to attend one of her lectures.

The crazy quilt research I am doing, It helped a lot. There was much information about time spans, the materials used at that time.
