Treasures in the Trunk is a splendid catalog of the inventiveness of these women, their eye for color & design & the stories of where they came from, were they going & what happened along the way.
Each quilt is presented in detailed photography & discussion of how it was sewn, fabrics of the time, stitching & designs. "White on White"; "Red & Green Tulip"; "Poke Stalk", "Double Irish Chain"; "Rose of Sharon"; "Lily"; "Harlow Album Quilt"; "Star"; "Setting Sun"; "Oregon Rose"; "Wandering Foot" & "Oregon Trail" is just a handful of the featured quilts.
Treasures in the Trunk is far, far more than a simple quilt sampler, it is a fascinating diary of an adventure that fired the imagination of people as far away as Russia, Italy & Scandanavia & generations of girls & boys, looking for the bright & wild edges beyond which lived strange & wonderful things. For anyone who loves quilting & history! Do check out my site for my full review & eInterview with this quilt historian & other books on quilting.
America can be proud for their wives and their contribution to its history. These words from a person who is not american and from a country where there is no tradition of quilting but who deeply admires this part of America.
Gering, NE. I especially liked the pictures of the women who made the quilts included with thier stories. This is a great book for anyone who is interested in quilt history!
