About this title


A review of quilts and quiltmaking in Kansas, based on the Kansas Quilt Project's catalogue of 13,107 quilts, and featuring interviews with quilters themselves. It focuses on specific types of quilts, as well as regional and ethnic communities, including Mennonites and African-Americans.

From the Back Cover:

"An exhilarating account of quilt history, Kansas history, and women's history. Rooted solidly in scholarly research and written with obvious empathy, this book excites the mind and warms the heart. It is a major contribution to the literature on quilts and women's lives. Salute!"--Gwen Marston, author of Twenty Little Patchwork Quilts

"A page turner, as readable as a good historical novel with terrific writing based on rock solid research. The chapters are wonderfully inclusive--the diversity of cultural groups represented, topics, voices, as well as the styles and eras, reveal so much of the richness and complexity of the state, the women, quilts, and finally all of us."--Julie Silber, author of Amish: The Art of the Quilt

"Rather than accept the unexamined myths of quilt lore, the authors have explored the data collected on approximately 13,000 quilts and present findings that question the validity of these myths. No longer will writers get away with discussions of the commonplace nature of quiltmaking on the overland trails or of a universal African-American design aesthetic. This book not only gives us a look at the range of quiltmaking in Kansas but, by extension, tells us much about quiltmaking in America."--Laurel Horton, author of Social Fabric: South Carolina's Traditional Quilts
