Remember Me: Women and Their Friendship Quilts is an intimate portrait of eight nineteenth-century quiltmakers. Within its stunning, photograph-laden pages, you'll meet women from New England and New York, women from Ohio, and women from pioneer states like Kansas, Wisconsin and Michigan. You'll read their stories - stories of young girlhood spent learning the skills that would help them as wives, stories of courtship and marriage, childbirth and motherhood. Presented in magnificent color are the wondrous friendship quilts they made - quilts pieced together to immortalize their youth, their affections and their family heritage. You'll read the names on those quilts and learn about the people behind them. And you'll be able to make three magnificent quilts in this book using the patterns and complete instructions created especially for you by Linda with well-known quilting teacher Laura Nownes.
