The Quilts of Tennessee: Images of Domestic Life prior to 1930. A smaller, but significant number of quiltmakers of the 1970s and 1980s began quilting in mid-life, a time when few quiltmakers of the earliest period began to make quilts.

Among her books are Quilts of Tennessee: Images of Domestic Life Prior to 1930 and Soft Covers for Hard Times: Quiltmaking and the Great Depression, which is regarded as the key work on mid-20th century quilts and quiltmaking. I began publishing other books. After Quilts of Tennessee came out, both of us, Bets Ramsey and I, realized we had probably made a pretty serious mistake by not including 1930s quilts because the women who had made those quilts were still alive in the 1980s. Around 1987, the Knoxville Museum of Art asked me to do a book and a project and exhibit on depression-era quilts that would travel around the country.

  • This is an outstanding State quilt documentation book. I recommend it to anyone interested in Eastern U.S. quilts.

  • Another state documentation book and a must have for your personal library, if you have any interest in quilt history.

  • Love her books.

  • good book - fast shipping

  • Very happy with book.

  • this is an excellent example of what a state quilt survey can accomplish. not only are the quilts interesting, beautiful and inspirational (i'm seriously considering making two quilts based on quilts in this book), the family histories are fascinating. there are wonderful photos of many 19th and early 20th century quilters, their families and homes, and excerpts from letters, diaries and wills.

    several quilts are, to use the work accurately, each unique. any quilter who has read more than one book on the history of quilts knows that many quilts appear in several sources. i haven't seen some of the quilts in this book in any other source (though i haven't read every quilt book--yet), which is surprising, since they are excellent examples of design and workmanship.

    there are applique and pieced quilts, some with stuffed quilting--a term the authors prefer to 'trapunto,' rightly arguing that the italian term refers to a specific style of quilting. the detail photos generally show the quilting designs clearly.

    the text is well written, the research is thorough, and the authors' conclusions from the data are not colored by romanticism (there is often enough drama and eventfulness in quilters' lives to make any romanticizing not only unnecessary but demeaning).

    well worth studying.

  • If you are from Tennessee, or even if you just love quilts and folk art, you will enjoy this book for the information and fabulous pictures of the rich heritage of quilting. This project contains not only pictures, but information about particular quilters and their lives. A fine mix of utility quilts and extraordinary quilt designs are included in this book. The collection comes from a survey of 1,425 quilts documented from various counties of Tennessee.

  • This is one of the seminal books for anyone who wants to understand the history of American quilts. Although its many photographs are fine, it is not merely another "coffee-table book." Its authors' scholarship and careful selection lift it out of that category, and their interesting writing style make it one of the jewels to come out of the study of regional quilts. One of the first books to document quilts of the American South, it details the usages and the designs of quilts made by its earliest settlers through 1930, when the national revival of interest in quiltmaking began to alter both the meaning and designs of quilts, blurring regional characteristics. Now that the quilts of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, and soon, Alabama are available, this book proves valuable for the way in which it shows there is no single "Southern" quilt type, but rather several, each one deriving from the history and peculiar history and culture of the vast region constituting the American South. A pioneer, it encourages others to build on the superb foundation and example it provides. It is as valuable in 2018 as it was when it first came into print. A true keeper.
