Very disappointed that all photos of quilts are in black and white. Wish I had known that before purchasing.

A few years ago I was helping a friend of mine identify some 75 year old quilts that her Grandmother had made by hand as my friend wanted to estimate the value of them for insurance purposes. A lady I met on a quilting forum recommended this book to me. I had checked out numerous quilt books from the library before acquiring this book, and the other books beforehand were of no help to me at all. This Quilts In America book is written by two world-renowned quilt historians and was definitely what my friend and I were looking for. It's a beautiful book, too, almost coffee-table quality.

Edited to add: I have no idea why it says my purchase was a paperback - because I did get the hardcover edition. Probably some type of computer glitch. :)

When this book was first published, it was an amazing mine of information for women hungry to know about quilting. The timing was perfect, coming out during the Bicentennial when the huge quilting revival was getting started. The quilts pictured and the research done were exactly what American quilters (and there were a few men, but not many then) wanted to know. The first edition had some binding issues, but none of us in my circle who were able to buy one wanted to trade it back in for another one. Even today, I believe this first example of modern quilt research, conducted by the Orlofskys, is a genuine treasure and if you can get a copy of any edition, it's well worth owning.

a "must" for anyone interested in American art...or quilts in general. a consummate body of work that both surveys the topic and gets into details only when appropriately necessary. written with a passion and sensitivity that sheds new light on some very old cloth.
