Book - Quilts Presidential/ Patriotic

Quilts Presidential and Patriotic -Hardcover by Sue Reich
Schiffer Publishing
Throughout our country's history, quilt makers have honored America's presidents in their quilt making. Featuring more than 330 images with insightful explanations, this book looks at the presidential quilts and patriotic quilts that have been made by American quilters. From the presidencies of George Washington through Barack Obama, the quilts¿along with intriguing quilt-related comments from newspapers of the times¿help us enjoy American history, and reflect on how quilt history has chosen to remember the US presidents. Also highlighted are 43 gorgeous newly-made quilts representing each of the United States presidents to date. Each measures twenty-four inches square, and is constructed in a pattern and fabric historically accurate to the leader's presidential term of office; their makers are quilt historians and enthusiasts affiliated with the American Quilt Study Group.
