Quilts, 1700-2010 : Hidden Histories, Untold Stories Paperback

Edited by Sue Prichard


This groundbreaking book documents the fascinating history of quilt and patchwork production.

The hidden histories and personal narratives of some of the most evocative objects in the V&A's collection are revealed, from the origins of the 'love poem' on the Chapman marriage coverlet to the sources of inspiration for the intricately pieced pictorial 'George III coverlet'.

Now available in paperback, this lavishly illustrated book challenges the assumption that stitching is simply 'women's work'.
