Gordon (The Complete Book of Quilting) explores the history of American folk art quilts in this collection, illustrated with examples from the Wisconsin State Historical Society. A variety of themes and techniques are presented, including floral quilts, red work, whole cloth, and geometric quilts. Extensive historical information is provided with each quilt and method, giving quilters background on the history of their art. Though there are patterns for selected quilts, knowledge of quilting is assumed. The history is fascinating, and the finished quilts—many of them vintage and antique—are sure to inspire.
