90 pp. "In Philena's Friendship Quilt: A Quaker Farewell to Ohio," Lynda Salter Chenoweth discovers the story behind a Quaker signature quilt made in Ohio, in 1853. Chenoweth practices what she calls "fabric archaeology" to reveal not only the identity of the quilt recipient and details of her life and community but also a striking feature of the quilt itself--a hidden design element created by the deliberate placement of names on the quilt's surface. Chenoweth also describes nineteenth-century signature quilts and their appeal to Quaker quiltmakers." Philena's Friendship Quilt "is the fourth book in the highly popular Ohio Quilt Series. The series tells the stories behind the social and historical circumstances that have influenced this unique and enduring American craft.
