Quiltings, Frolicks, & Bees : 100 Years of Signature Quilts Hardback

Description

Historically, societies of women gathering together for the purpose of quiltmaking have been referred to as quiltings, frolicks, and bees.

This book brings together newspaper articles about their needlework activities with quilts inscribed with hundreds of names - known as signature quilts.

Quilting communities encompassed families, church groups, civic and social organizations, and varied awareness groups.

Using their quiltmaking skills, women comforted both their families and those in need.

They successfully raised monies for their villages and towns, for veterans and orphaned children, for worldwide organizations such as the Red Cross, and benevolent causes close to home.

This nearly 200-year tradition in quiltmaking carries into the 21st Century.

With needle and scroll, quiltmakers continue to capture their special family events, hails and farewells of friends and coworkers, and needful societal causes in the medium of cloth.
