From Library Journal:

The poignant lives of seven obscure New England women are lovingly memorialized in this handsome volume. The author owns the quilts they made and has researched each one, digging through public records, traveling across America, talking with descendants and genealogists. The result is a series of sensitive narratives that depict ordinary people coping with pioneer life, typhoid, the Civil War, and the death of children. There are splendid color photographs of the quilts themselves (most were quilted in the 1840s and 1850s). Friendship quilts were made from pieced blocks inscribed with names, dates, places, verses, or practical sayings. These can be seen as valuable historical evidence as well as folk art. Highly recommended for public libraries and subject collections in American history, needlework, and women's studies. Priscilla E. Pratt, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, New York
