About this title

Synopsis:

Informative text about quilt patterns, including Bear’s Paw, Trail of the Covered Wagon, and Turkey Tracks, and appealing scratchboard illustrations provide a glimpse of pioneer life and celebrate an American art form. “McCurdy’s finely etched illustrations, with their careful attention to detail and old-fashioned flavor, urge upon readers a commanding vision of American history.”--Publishers Weekly

Review:

There are few heirlooms more treasured, or useful, than a handmade quilt. At its best, a fine quilt is a visual feast of color and pattern, not to mention an all-around great thing to wrap up in on a cold day. Ann Whitford Paul aims to inspire a new generation of quilting artists with her book The Seasons Sewn, which is one part pattern book and one part storybook. Taking the name of 24 classic quilt patterns as a starting point, she has fashioned stories that explain how the names might have come about. Each story is accompanied by photographs of the pattern and an illustration of Paul's story. The illustrations, by Michael McCurdy, are a triumph.
