Quilts in Red and Green and the Women Who Made Them

Be the first to review this product

The 10 appliqué patterns in this book are beautiful examples of a type of 19th century quilt style noted for its decorative features - the appliquéd quilt with bold exuberant floral patterns in bright colors of red and green. Most of the quilts were made in points of migration - a path stretching from Pennsylvania through the Ohio Valley states and to the Midwest. The quilters were German, English, Scotch-Irish, Irish and Welsh. They used the fabrics available to them at the time. This book builds on that background, using fabrics that are available to us today.

The 10 appliqué patterns in this book are beautiful examples of a type of 19th century quilt style noted for its decorative features - the appliquéd quilt with bold exuberant floral patterns in bright colors of red and green. Historians Nancy Hornback and Terry Clothier Thompson share their enthusiasm for these quilts. Most of the quilts were made in points of migration - a path stretching from Pennsylvania through the Ohio Valley states to the Midwest. The quilters were German, English, Scotch-Irish, Irish and Welsh. They used the fabrics available to them at the time. This book builds on that background, using fabrics that are available to us today. The quilting itself was an important part of the red and green quilt tradition, so the authors have included a bountiful selection of quilting designs.
