Review: Quilts in the Attic

Quilts in the Attic: Uncovering the Hidden Stories of the Quilts We Love, by Karen S. Musgrave
Genre: History
ISBN: 9780760341216
Published: February 15th 2012 by MBI Publishing Company
Rating: 4

From Goodreads: Quilts in the Attic features 30 heartwarming stories of great quilt discoveries—from bidding on a breathtaking quilt at an estate auction in Virginia to uncovering a little-known art form in France to finding and repairing a priceless heirloom quilt that had been used, neglected, and damaged, these stories from everyday stitchers and well-known quilters alike reveal the mystery and meaning of the quilts we love.

This book is so inspiring! I loved flipping through the book and looking at the pictures of the quilts and reading about them. It was fun to read, too. These stories felt more like fictional short-stories than they did a historical report! The only thing I would change is I would have liked the book itself to be a little larger, because the pictures were so small. I also would have liked to see more pictures of the quilt. There was only one picture of each quilt.

This would be an excellent gift to a quilter or a quilt collector.
