By the end of the 19th century, the homemade quilt had achieved the status of bona fide art form. The most prized examples were done in the appliqué style: colored pieces of fabric were sewn onto a white muslin background in intricate patterns or patchwork. Then, the entire piece was stitched together with batting and backing. The result was a "show" quilt, prized for its beauty and unusual design.
This volume features over 40 splendid examples of turn-of-the-century appliqué quilt designs — a unique resource and an inspiration for designers, artists, illustrators, and needleworkers. Many patterns have robust histories dating back to colonial times. Others are more recent variations or embellishments of time-honored themes.
Choose from a wealth of traditional motifs: pineapples, oak leaves, baskets, cardinals, wreaths, roses, as well as such perennially popular patterns as "Old Town Pump" and "Priscilla Alden." Graphic artists and craftspeople will find this book a valuable reference while colorists will enjoy adding rich hues to a treasury of favorite patterns.
