From courtings that nearly go astray to husbands and wives brought together by quilts to quilters obsessed with securing scraps, Love of Quilts is at once a delightful read and a slice of social history.
Also included is a bibliography of quilt fiction and a timeline that lists American quilt fiction, plays, poems, and patterns published from 1845 to 1940. If you love quilts, Love of Quilts is a must read!
Cuesta Ray Benberry is a respected quilt historian and the author of Always There: The African-American Presence in American Quilts. She was inducted into the Quilter's Hall of Fame in 1983.
