View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Like the exhibition it accompanies, this catalogue, edited by Catherine Morris, spans two centuries of quilt making, examining the historical designation of quilts as crafts, the late twentieth-century shift toward a formalist appreciation of quilts as works of abstract art, and the impact of feminist scholarship on the ways quilts are viewed and interpreted. In addition to an essay by Morris and a roundtable discussion among her and four experts on quilts, the book features examples of the most iconic quilt designs together with illuminating texts on their place in quilt history.
