Book: Wartime Quilts
This striking book written by Annette Gero gathers an extraordinary collection of quilts created during wartime. The majority of the book is dedicated to works made by men, mainly soldiers, which date back to as far as 1760. The fabrics used are those from their military uniforms, from which they have created the most dazzling and complex patterns. The piecing and appliqué work is exceptional. A number also include scenes, some patriotic, some personal. Each one is well documented and sheds new light on the work itself as well as the period in which it was made.
Full of superb photos, historical research and illustrations! Beyond the historical aspect, it is also an exceptional library of traditional quilts.
Hardcover with colour illustrations.
