From the renowned Smithsonian collection, a celebration of the heritage of American quilts and the traditions behind them, along with techniques and patterns for the DIY quilter

The true beauty of quilts lies in their democratic nature-anyone can make a quilt. This groundbreaking collection draws on the expertise of the Smithsonian''s textile curator and their major and extensive collection at the National Museum of American History, covering quilts from the birth of the country in the 1700s to the new century of modern quilts. This inclusive look offers a scope beyond just chintz and wholecloth, but to exquisite, unexpected quilts with wild originality, the spirit of experimentation, and true artistic inspiration.
