Publisher Comments:

Crib quilts ? small quilted spreads of pieced or appliqué work ? are among the most popular American collectibles. This carefully researched and knowledgeably written volume by two experts on quilting and American folk art provides an engaging introduction to the history and creation of these small wonders. Also included is much useful information on collecting, displaying, storing and cleaning crib quilts; quilts for doll beds; and related small collectibles such as rugs, table rugs and pockets.

Authors Thos. K. Woodard and Blanche Greenstein provide an entertaining and fact-filled introduction to the history of crib quilts and infants' clothing, followed by a stunning gallery of full-color photographs displaying 19th- and early 20th-century creations of classic pieced, appliqué and Amish quilts. Concluding sections contain easy-to-follow instructions for completing 13 quilt projects ? with patterns ranging from the familiar shapes of Star Medallion, Baskets, Schoolhouse, Lone Star and Bear's Paw to the visually absorbing configurations of Circus, Tumbling Blocks, Double Wedding and Grandmother's Dream.

An invaluable guide for needlecrafters, this fascinating and practical book will also appeal to lovers of American folk art and students of cultural history.
