Stories in Stitches: Quilts from the Cass County Quilt Documentation Project
The stories of our lives are often told in stitches…
Nothing is as functional, beautiful and poignant as a quilt. They keep us warm in the winter, they are beautiful pieces of art and they remind us of the bond of family and home. They also tell us the everyday stories of the people who made them.
In 2010, a community in Western Missouri joined together to document more than 100 quilted treasures for future generations to enjoy and learn from. Some came out of linen closets, others came from boxes in the attic and some left their homes for the first time ever to be documented. The stories these quilts tell reveal the larger story of their community and the times in which they were made.
Join authors Jenifer Dick, Carol Bohl, Linda Hammontree and Janice Britz as they show you these amazing quilts and tell you their stories. Plus six projects inspired by these quilts are patterned for you to make!
