""Red & White..." is a testimonial to the prodigious research conducted by author Deborah Harding. This excellent book's publication, occurring during a time of ever-increasing fascination with the old time needleart redwork, will be welcomed by many, including quiltmakers, quilt historians, quilt collectors, textile experts, appraisers, antique dealers, art historians, and designers." --Cuesta Benberry ""Red & White..." is the first book to explore redwork quilts in a systematic manner. This book is a must for anyone specifically interested in American quilt history and more generally in American textile history and culture." --Lee Kogan, Museum of American Folk Art, New York "As one who loves embroidery, I have discovered that Deborah Harding's" Red & White" is a treasure! Each of the 100 actual-size patterns is its own little piece of Americana-and all it takes to recreate them is one basic stitch." --Julie Nixon Eisenhower "At last-a fascinating book that explores the patterns, sources, and methods of creating those enchanting, figural redwork embroidery quilts. How helpful to have such a delightfully written and comprehensive reference work for this increasingly popular collecting area." --Laura Fisher, Antique Quilts & Americana, New York
