Comments to eBook Quilting Pieces of the Past (Better Homes Gardens)

I thought this book was paperback and would be much smaller (less pages). I wasnt quite sure. I thought it would be mostly pictures with maybe a few patterns but boy was I wrong....I was pleasantly surprised that the book is not only hard cover but a little like an encyclopedia of, with actual paper patterns at the back if the book to cut out and use! Extremely nice book, beautiful quilts and although I haven't tried to make any of the quilts yet the instructions seem to be written pretty clearly.

Received this book. Book in great shape and Patterns attached. I opened and went through the book and
it is so nice.-, . The book is so fresh it may cover back to1830-1860, 1860-1890, 1890-1920, 1920-1950, 1950 to present day
but it sure is up to day with lovely colors and designs. I look forward to reviewing it again and picking out a pattern to try There are 54 quilts to make. This book would make a really good gift !!!!I Sue/ Baltimore

This book is divided into five periods in American quilting history: 1830-1860, 1860-1890, 1890-1920, 1920-1950, and 1950 to the present. Each section includes historical information about quiltmaking at that time, small photos of historical quilts from private collections, and project quilts that reflect the defining characteristics of the period.

This book has several positive attributes. Although not extensively detailed, the quilting history information would be informative to the more general reader but probably not to the avid, well-read quilting enthusiast. The timeline of facts in American history included in each section is fluff. No offense to Better Homes and Gardens, but not even those of us who are Iowans care if the company's founder, E.T. Meredith, was U.S. Secretary of Agriculture during the 1920s.

The quilting projects are not for everyone. I prefer quilts that have historical blocks in repetitive designs with few colors and lots of white space between and within the blocks. This book presents numerous quilts that are simple, spare, elegant and beautiful. There are perhaps a dozen quilt projects that would qualify as two-color or nearly-two-color quilts. Beautiful examples include the criss-cross quilt, checkers and rails quilt, and Colorado block quilt. Most of the quilts are bed-sized quilts, with a fewl table-top and wall-hanging designs included. The focus of the book is strictly on quilts; no sham, valence, or pillow pattern accompanies any quilt.

The book is sturdy, includes full-size patterns, and offers detailed directions for quilt construction, including piecing diagrams. Directions for some quilts include both strip-piecing methods as well as traditional pattern-template methods. Each project quilt is well-photographed so the quilter can see what his/her quilt will actually look like when completed. Bound into the back of the book are large, perforated pattern sheets that include pattern pieces that could not be presented on the 8 1/2 by eleven pages of the book; be sure to ask the amazon seller if these sheets are still attached.

If you own other Better Homes and Gardens books of quilting projects you might find it helpful to check this book out of the library and determine if the patterns in this book are already in other books you own. I was surprised to see that the quilt, "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul", was identical, down to the photograph and directions, to the quilt of the same name in the book "Two-Color Quilts", also from Better Homes and Gardens. I don't like paying twice for the same information.

I would recommend this book to the newer quilter who has either taken classes or made at least one quilt. Because there are so many lovely, simple quilts in this book, the book will be in my collection for a long time.

I took this book out of my library and plan to buy it. I think it's inspiring; I love the quilts and they make me think about ways to vary them. I enjoy the historical information. The book is a bit sketchy in its' isntructions in places. If one is a rank beginner, it might be frustrating. I'm an "endless beginner"; have never mastered finer points of patchwork and quilting and probably never will. Technical quilt piecing wizardry has never interested me.

I love Kaffe Fassett's books and this book, to me, is almost an American version of what he does; nothing really tricky, but good use of simple forms and materials to create impressive and generally bold quilts.

I've been looking to expand my collection of quilting books and find the reviews interesting; I suggest taking them all with a grain of salt. Everyone has their own taste. One persons' boring quilt is another persons' masterpiece.

This is a fun read. I was expecting that this book would just be patterns, but I really like the articles about sewing in each era. I got the book because I was looking for one particular pattern and I am glad that I did. There aren't a lot of patterns in this book that I will make (I like making more modern quilts as a personal preference) but I loved reading about the history of quilting.

Better Homes & Gardens again offers a great reference source for history and quilting. This edition includes clear and vivid photos and a pattern sheet to go with the instructions. The section titled "Quilter's workshop" gives tips for tool and fabric selection and how-to's for some of the tricky aspects of quilting.
Very interesting historical accounts of an aspect of homemaking often overlooked.
I would also recommend getting BH&G's America's Heritage Quilts published in 1991 to augment your collection of references. These books complement each other.

A very nice clean book and such good patterns and plenty of things to learn , I will cherish this book because of all the good quilts from the past and I grew up and always loving so many of the designs as a child. I will make my grandchildren some quilts from this book.Many thanks.
What a GREAT book to have in my library. There are so many projects that I want to do from this publication. I really need more hours. The instructions as well as the colored pages and the content has been thoroughly studied by the publishers.

Thanks Better Homes & Gardens for a wonderful book.
