Preserving History: Patchwork Patterns Inspired by Antique Quilts
A connoisseur of antique quilts, Remembering the Past author Julie Hendricksen shares the best of her 30+ years of collecting in this exquisitely photographed book. Remake one-of-a-kind quilts from the late 1800s through the 1930s, each handpicked by Julie from her vast collection. Some quilts are remade as exact replicas of antique quilts that Julie owns; others are re-imagined by studying old quilts too damaged to add to her collection. A special section addresses an often-overlooked part of remaking antique quilts: the quilting! Learn how to quilt an antique quilt using authentic examples from the era.
