Here’s a great show on Youtube, courtesy of the Quilters Hall of Fame. The companion book is available from Amazon. There is some truly amazing workmanship here, especially when you remember that these quilts are inspired by old ones, but are only 42″ square or even smaller! Hawaiian quilts, applique album quilts, even wool quilts are shown, with close-ups of every one, so you can see all the detail. Click on that blue title now to see the show!
