Pennsylvania Patchwork Pillowcases & Other Small Treasures
The German immigrants to Southeastern Pennsylvania developed a rich and very colorful quilting heritage after they arrived in America. This book focuses on a rare subset of that tradition – the patchwork pillowcase.
Gathered from private collectors and museums, the pillowcases presented here were made from about 1820 to 1920. Over 250 colour photos showcase a huge assortment of nineteenth century printed fabrics used in both pieced and appliqué pillowcases. Quilt designs range from a simple four-patch to a complex carpenter’s wheel, while colour schemes range from reserved red and white to bold pink and cheddar.
This book will delight the quilt historian and inspire the quilt-maker.
