New Pathways Into Quilt History

Herein lies historical and educational information on quilt & textile dating, identification, development & manufacture, emphasizing printed cottons from 1700 to 1950. Students, teachers, collectors, quiltmakers & costumers will find it a useful reference. All of the textiles & quilts are from my personal collection, unless otherwise noted.
