From the Publisher

Valued as practical household items, admired as works of painstaking artistic creation, cherished as family heirlooms, our quilts also tell much about who we are, how we live, and what we believe. The 103 quilts featured here (all drawn from the Nebraska Quilt Project survey) exemplify more than a century and a quarter of quiltmaking, from the territorial period to the 1980s. The descriptions of the patterns, materials, and quiltmaking techniques are rounded out with biographical sketches of the quiltmakers--women, children, and men whose stories are as varied as the quilts they made. Quiltmakers, quilt collectors, and those who simply admire quilts will treasure this compendium of Nebraska's quiltmaking traditions.
