18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By C. Boykin on August 23, 2010
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.

This book gives credit to the creative and exceptional skills of the slaves in an area where their contribution has mostly been ignored.
