Review: The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art, an Oral History

User Review  - Sandi - Goodreads

Loved, loved, loved this book. I wish it didn't end. There was just something so wonderful and historic about reading the words of the quilters of long ago. The stories were sometimes hard to read, emotionally, but I couldn't put it down. Read full review

Review: The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art, an Oral History

User Review  - Jennifer Schooley - Goodreads

Pieces of history told by quilters in the 70's, as they remembered their pioneer childhoods, remind me to be thankful for the ease of modern life and to be thriftier and waste less. And the quilts are amazing examples of folk art! Read full review
