Synopsis

The origins, traditions and symbolism of patchwork in clothing and quilts are explored from multi-national examples over the past 500 years. This classic book now in its first English edition traces quilts across Europe and Asia and through the growing textile industry of North America. Colour and black-and-white photographs show beautiful applique and Amish quilts as well as crazy-quilts, bridal and friendship quilts and more. Examples represent historical and contemporary prize-winning designs. The author provides an extensive bibliography in hopes that it will foster more extensive research into the interesting background of patchwork art. Quilt collectors, dealers, and makers, as well as textile artists and designers will find interesting explanations of the designs. They will also find inspiration for their own work in this beautiful book.
