Patricia J. Herr, 'Quilting Traditions: Pieces from the Past,' published by Schiffer Published, Ltd., 2000.
Quilting Traditions: Pieces from the Past is a 160 page softcover measuring 11" x 8 1/2". The condition is very good.
Bold and beautiful, treasured by family members, valued by museums and collectors, and exciting to view, exceptional quilts were produced by the innovative quilt makers of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This book features a spectacular array of quilts made by Amish, Mennonite, and other Pennsylvania German groups, but also spotlights significant contributions from the Scots-Irish Presbyterians and the English Quakers.
The quilts are presented in 225 gorgeous color photographs, enhanced by close-up details, tools, accessories, and the people surrounding their creation. Carefully researched text breathes life into these individual works of art, and includes accounts of quilt makers that are as vibrant, intricate, and rich as the quilts themselves.
