Four Centuries of Quilts

Four Centuries of Quilts

Another very interesting book arrived recently - a bit like buses - nothing and then several arrive at once! This book is based around the collection of quilts and textiles from the Colonial Williamsburg Collection, and is written by Linda Baumgarten and Kimberlsy Smith Ivey. With 21 Chapters, there is a comprehensive survey of quilts, from early Indian textiles to more  recent genres, such as Amish, Polynesian and Make Do.Engageinly written and nicely illsutrated, this is another one for your wish list - or Christmas stocking? if it is large enough - as its another heafty volume!
