Synopsis: The German immigrants to Southeastern Pennsylvania developed a rich and very colorful quilting heritage after they arrived in America. This book focuses on a rare subset of that tradition--the patchwork pillowcase. If antique Pennsylvania quilts number in the thousands, patchwork pillowcases number in the hundreds. Gathered from private collectors and museums, the pillowcases presented here were made from about 1820 to 1920. Over 250 color photos showcase a huge assortment of nineteenth century printed fabrics used in both pieced and appliqué pillowcases. Quilt designs range from a simple four-patch to a complex carpenter's wheel, while color schemes range from reserved red and white to bold pink and cheddar. This book will delight the quilt historian and inspire the quilt-maker.

About the Author: Ann Hermes is a collector of antique quilts and a long-time student of quilt history. Originally from Northbrook, Illinois, Ann s move to the Philadelphia area twenty-five years ago to pursue a career as a research scientist in the chemical industry landed her in a place rich in history and quilting traditions. She is a member of the American Quilt Study Group and an active participant in local textile history events. Inspired by her collection, Ann designs and makes miniature quilts, dozens of which have appeared in national quilting magazines. Ann lives in Ambler, Pennsylvania, with her husband, two sons, and two black cats.
