Album Quilts

PieceWork recommends a needlework book of interest:

Album Quilts

This is far more than a book on quilts—it’s also the story of the people who made these distinct quilts in one small region of the state. In this area, between 1888 and 1918, quilters made album quilts to document life events. Quilt historian Sue Cummings shares her documentation here. The quilts are stunning and beautifully photographed.
