Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Red & White: American Redwork Quilts and Patterns is the most comprehensive look at redwork available. Redwork, a type of needlework popular during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, is once again the hottest trend in the quilting world. In this two-volume, heavily-illustrated work, best-selling author Deborah Harding traces pattern sources and design inspirations for antique quilts with original catalog offers and period advertisements to help collectors identify, date, and document their own quilts. Blocks on twenty antique quilts are analyzed in detail. In the accompanying pattern book, 100 actual-size patterns and detailed instructions enable readers to create their own redwork quilts and linens.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
