The definitive treasury of Massachusetts''s historic quilts, and a tribute to the creative spirit of their makers
From the Publisher:
The Massachusetts Quilt Documentation Project (MassQuilts) is a volunteer organization that holds "documentation days" across the state to identify, date, and photograph pre-1950 quilts in private and museum collections. Formally organized in 1994, approximately 5,000 quilts have been documented (the original goal was 3,000). These quilts provide a window through which to view the history of the state, telling stories of international trade and domestic manufacture, economic booms and busts, national politics, and neighborly discourse. The project focuses on quilts that have a history of original use in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Quilts will present the group's findings. Essays by experts will lend context to catalogue-like entries on notable quilts. The quilts themselves will star, in about 200 illustrations, most in rich color.


"A lavishly produced and unorthodox history of Massachusetts has been pieced together from a mammoth labor of love." 04/26/2009
