- Gathered in
Time: Utah Quilts and Their Makers, Settlement to 1950 by Kae Covington
The first Mormon pioneers arrived in Utah in 1847, bringing with them a quilting tradition
that took root and flourished. In spite of sometimes bleak circumstances, the pioneer
women possessed an urge for artistic expression that is universal. To preserve this
artistic heritage, the Utah Quilt Heritage Corporation spent five years documenting more
than 2200 quilts crafted in Utah from settlement to 1950. With over 90 color plates, Gathered
in Time showcases a representative selection of these remarkable quilts.
Each quilt is accompanied by a story about its maker that carefully combines family and
cultural history with equally fascinating details about color choice, available patterns,
and quilting techniques.
Punch: Quilt Designs With a Florida Flavor by Marilyn Dorwart
If you like the bright, colorful and clean look of Florida, then you'll love
the quilts in this book. There are instructions for 10 quilts, some pieced, most
appliqued. Marilyn shares her technique of "preassembled applique," which makes
the going a lot easier! My favorite of these quilts is "Flamingo A La Andy,"
based on an Andy Warhol design.
