texas state quilt documentation bookLone Stars, Volume I : A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1836-1936
Lone Stars is the result of an ambitious three-year search for fine old Texas quilts still privately owned and made or brought to the state between the year the Texas Republic came into being and its centennial. The authors had been told by "authorities" that finding really fine quilts in what had been a rough frontier area was quite unlikely. But page after page of visually stunning quilts prove with a vengeance that experts can be wrong. Here "lone star" does not refer to the well-known quilt pattern but rather to the fact that each of the 62 quilts pictured is the "star" work of someone who may have not known she was creating a masterpiece. For each quilt there is a full-page color illustration, accompanying documentation, and, when available, personal information about the maker.  Click on the title to order

click on the title to order Mississippi Quilts(PB)  Following the pattern of several other states, the Mississippi Quilt Association's Heritage Quilt Search Project was a six-year effort to examine and document the state's quilting traditions. Association members examined more than 1700 quilts from public and private collections, finally choosing 140 quilts created between the early 1800s and 1946, after which synthetic fabrics and battings became available. Johnson (The America Quilt) describes the quilts within the social and cultural traditions of Mississippi and offers detailed discussions on the pattern, maker, date, current owner, and dimensions. Often a photograph of the quilt maker is included. Chapters detail the wide range of styles represented in Mississippi quilt-making traditions in various time periods, from 1826 through the Civil War and Reconstruction periods and into the 20th century Click on the title to order
