The first illustrated history of the art of quiltmaking as practiced
from colonial times to the present in the Catskill Mountains region. A
5-county survey (Ulster, Delaware, Greene, Sullivan and Schoharie), with
profiles and examples of the work of all 46 inductees in the Catskill Mountain
Quilters Hall of Fame.
In this volume Steven Hoare has compiled a wonderful history of the 20th-century women of a little-known region of America. Each woman comes alive in her own voice, complete with her own view of life as well as of quilting. In many ways this is not just a book about quilters in the Catskill Mountains, it is about people, and women especially, who make up America.-- From the Introduction by Carter Houck, longtime quilt magazine editor and author of numerous books on quiltmaking.
