Synopses & Reviews
This book exhibits a sparkling array of quilts from Mennonite and Amish groups of central Kansas. Striking scenes of prairie life and stories from quilters show how these folk art masterpieces fit within a patchwork of history and tradition. "A quilt is not just a quilt", writes the author. A quilt is "not an inanimate object only to be spread on a bed or hung on a wall. It is a repository of special memories".
