A description of works of art made from fabric 1 Sept. 2014
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on
This book is primarily a history of quilting in Colorado as expressed in images of quilts, photos of the people that made them and a short textual description of both. The timeframe of the people and the quilts extends back to when Colorado was not yet a state.
The quilting bee, a gathering of people (nearly all women) to make quilts, was a regular social event in the days when the people were pioneers and often somewhat isolated. It was an opportunity for the women to socialize and bond while doing something productive, often cooperating in the making of a community quilt. That social event has continued in a modified form up to the present, only now the social interaction is primarily through newsletters and the internet.
The images of the quilts are in color and of high quality, you can see a great deal of the detail of the design and the photos of the people help to humanize them. Unfortunately, few of the photos of the people are precisely dated; the timeframe for most can only be narrowed to the range of a decade.
All of the quilts are works of art, for many the more you look at them the more you see additional detail. The people that made these quilts were very talented, it is fortunate that books like this and the Capitol Quilt Show that took place in the Colorado State Capitol Building exist to make sure that the appreciation of those talents will continue through the generations.

This book was made available for free for review purposes.

Excellent Coffee Table book 26 Sept. 2014
By Ellie - Published on
This delightful book is definitely high quality with outstanding pictures on glossy paper, with the hard front and back covers which are with pictures identical to that of the dust jacket. The book will be a classic and definitely a conversation piece on the coffee table in any home whether or not a person quilts. The only thing which would improve the book is if the print were of a color for more contrast with the page color for ease in reading.
A good additon to a quilters library. 19 Feb. 2015

I wasn't wowed by this book. I expected more since the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest little jewels in the quilt museum world and I assumed there would be greater emphasis on their collection.. Nevertheless, it has a place in my quilt history book library
