For over two decades, volunteers from across Montana registered local quilts as a part of the Montana Historic Quilt Project. The quilts chronicle Montana's history over the last 150 years, telling the stories of statehood, the struggle for women’s suffrage, two world wars, the Great Depression, as well as the recent past. This highly illustrated book showcases the Montana’s best, most unique, and most interesting quilts and describes the life and times of the extraordinary people who made them. Border to Border: Quilts and Quiltmakers of Montana is an invaluable addition to quilting literature and to Montana history.

• Over 150 rich, full-color photography of quilts

• Over 50 historical photographs

• Authentic, well-researched histories of individual quilts and quiltmakers
