Format: Paperback
Beneath each handmade quilt is a warm human being, and a fascinating story. Dorothy Zopf uncovers this material in her fascinating pastiche of oral histories. She pinpoints how what's available and what's needed combine with natural artistry to create lasting and functional treasures. The common thread that weaves this patchwork together is a texture of a place, of a time, and of a group of women who come alive in Zopf's deft hands. The stories and photos she has pieced together are not to be missed.

This book was very interesting in that it was an actual journey of different counties where local quilters would get together and share their creative talents, and their hardships, happily invite the author to document the information needed to make this book. I originally got this book to learn about the people who live in these areas, due to my looking for hints about my Spanish heritage. Now, I have more information and locations to explore in finding my relatives, even to the extent that this book came from a certain library, which happened to be formerly owned by the very surname I happen to be searching for! How good is that? Patricia Mallory ps the book I purchased was in very good condition.
