Publisher's description: With 400 color and black and white images, American Heroes Quilts, Past & Present, is the first in-depth compilation of quilt patterns named for or associated with famous Americans. Quoting from original sources where possible, the book explores 55 American heroes that quilters have honored through the centuries. Included are such familiar names as George Washington, Dolley Madison, Lewis and Clark, and Charles Lindbergh, as well as heroes who are all but forgotten today. Stories and vignettes bring these people to life. Who was the Hull in Hull's Victory? Why was Hobson the most kissed man in America? How did DuMont change America forever? Who was the only actor honored with a quilt block? With over 100 quilts and close-up photographs of all 112 patterns, this book is a must-have for serious quilters, quilt historians, and anyone who loves American history.
