Natural History of the Traditional Quilt
John Forrest (au); Deborah Blincoe (au). Traditional quilts serve many purposes over the course of a useful life, & observing this life cycle from bed covering to ground cover to ragbag for scrap uses led authors Forrest & Blincoe to the idea that quilts, like living things, have a natural history that can be studied scientifically. They explore that natural history through an examination of the taxonomy, morphology, behavior, & ecology of quilts in their native environment -- the homes of humans who make, use, keep, & bestow them. This methodology is applicable to many kinds of crafts & will be of wide interest to students of folklore, anthropology, & art history. Case studies of traditional quilts & their makers in the Catskills & Appalachia add a human dimension to the book. 200+ drawings of quilt patterns.
