Flowery Quilts -A Special Offer

We just got a really nice book in from one of our remainder suppliers-

A Flowering of Quilts. edited by Patricia Cox Crews. Lincoln; University of Nebraska Press: 2001. This is a beautifully illustrated book which features 53 19th century floral appliqué quilts from the collection of the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska. There are chintz appliqué quilts, album quilts, pieced quilts, crazy quilts, and more. The text explores the background and history of the patterns, as well as the influence of gardens and flowers on women in 19th century America. A beautifully produced, colorfully illustrated, interestingly informative quilt book. Hardcover. 8.5”x10.5”, 147 pages, 53 color plates and some b/w illustrations, dj; bibliography. New. [95030].

It hasn't gone into our catalog yet; they literally just arrived yesterday. It was published at $35; if any of our blog readers can use one, we'll offer them right now for $10, plus shipping ($5).

Combine a copy with any other books from our Textiles Page and we'll ship all of them for free! But please remember to mention that you saw that offer here.
