Reviews

Kaylakie has crafted a remarkably fine read, revealing privately held quilts that are touchstones ... She knows quilts with both (gloved!) hands, sharing their stories deftly.--Xenia E. Cord, President American Quilt Study Group ""The stories of these quilts are trapunto-puffed, fat and rounded, stuffed with the stuff of real people.""--Joyce Gibson Roach, fellow, Texas Folklore Society and Texas State Historical Association ""[Texas Quilts and Quilters] is a visual delight that adds to the body of work on Texas quilts and quiltmakers... Jim Lincoln's photographs of the quilts, both overall views and clear details, are outstanding... Overall, the chosen quilts reflect the challenges and joys of life in the Great Plains... Kaylakie's choices can inspire other to look in-depth at how the sense of place influences both process and product."" -- Virginia Gunn, Great Plains Quarterly, Fall 2008 ""The stories included with each quilt make this book very special indeed...Marcia Kaylakie's stories tell of special quilts owned by people who love them and the stories their quilts tell."" --Mary Lou Midkiff, The Permian Historical Annual, Vol. 48, 2008
