Barbara shares stories and photos of some really beautiful quilts to illustrate the questions that can arise about how to care for them. And she ends with this lovely sentiment:
I will highly recommend Ann’s book to everyone with a quilt! Give our quilts the special care they deserve, and help preserve them for the years (and generations) to come.
Lots more information about the book - ordering information, other reviews, FAQs, etc. - can be found on my website.
Barbara also told me about the Baltimore Appliqué Society. This is a group inspired by the beauty of these antique appliqué gems. They focus both on keeping the appliqué traditions alive and in supporting museum collections and antique quilt preservation in general - two noble goals.
