This book is a treat to browse through. I am blown away by the beautiful, handmade treasures captured within its pages! These quilts are imperfect and human, and all the more lovely because of it.

An awesome historical book that honors all the "everyday working quilts" that our parents and grandparents made, rather than just those that most would consider to be "quilt show perfect".
