Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Quilting has existed for thousands of years, spanning the globe, practiced by women as well as men, and bringing together communities and generations.

F is for Friendship: A Quilt Alphabet examines the subject of quilting, as an art form as well as an item of utility, tracing its early history from a cave in Mongolia to patchwork bedcoverings transported in overland wagon trains to present-day exhibits at renowned museums. Topics include patterns, inventions, and fabric choices, as well as quilts as vehicles of American history.

Review:

"In this addition to Sleeping Bear's long-running alphabet series, pleasing rhymes and extensive sidebars focus on the symbolic and utilitarian value of patchwork quilts, while glowing illustrations depict both intimate and communal scenes. Under the gaze of her grandmother's portrait, a child observes her mother at work: 'G is for Generations/ She loved to quilt and then taught me/ its comfort, skill, and artistry.' A depiction of the Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt on the National Mall (for 'N') emphasizes the power of quilts to connect and heal ('What weighs 54 tons, got nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and is the world's largest community art project?'). A sensitive and uplifting homage. Ages 6 — 10. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
