Fascinated by the International Quilt Museum? Hold a visual history of American quiltmaking in your hands!

Whether you fall head over heels for every antique quilt you see or you’re intrigued by quiltmakers of the past—our coffee-table book American Quilt Treasures was made for you.

Inside this exquisite hardcover volume, you’ll take a fascinating behind-the-scenes journey through a curated collection of quilts housed at the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, the largest publicly held quilt collection in the world. The museum graciously allowed Martingale to photograph 65 one-of-a-kind quilts, ranging from just 30 years old to an incredible 197 years old. Many of these quilts have unknown makers, but in this lavish coffee-table book devoted to a visual storytelling of American quiltmaking, those makers’ voices are heard through their stitches—and their talents are celebrated.

Prepare to be whisked away by astonishing patchwork and awe-inspiring appliqué, all captured in lavish, detailed photography.
