"Historically, societies of women gathering together for the purpose of quiltmaking have been referred to as quiltings, frolicks and bees. This book presents actual American newspaper articles about this needlework activity in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inscribed with hundreds of people's names including makers of the quilt blocks, these quilts are known as "signature quilts" and they reflect the cultural service the quilts had when first made and today as historical records. Family, patriotic, community and religious themes are represented among these highly cherished textile documents."--Publisher's description.
