Here is the largest, most comprehensive history of American quilts ever published! The Quilt explores the evolution of quilting in America, showing in vivid colors and patterns how African American, Amish, Hawaiian, Hmong, and Native American quilts celebrate cultural identity, and how quilts connect us to one another through quilting bees and other community groups. Noted quilt historian Elise Schebler Roberts also goes beyond the historical nature of quilts to cover current efforts at quilt preservation, collecting and appraising, and state documentation projects. Her book features an encyclopedia of favorite quilt styles and is gloriously illustrated with more than 200 full-color photographs of classic collectible quilts.

Recognized the world over for their bright colors and bold graphic designs, Hawaiian applique quilts reflect the lush subtropical flora of the islands where they were born. The book provides an extensive overview of Hawaiian quilting from its beginning as an art form in the 1870s to the present day. The book includes twenty-two quilts created by three influential master quilters and thirty contemporary quilts by six highly respected modern quilters that reflect a new range in styles and techniques, from traditional to trend setting, being explored by island quilters today. This bilingual publication, English and Japanese, visually explores a vibrant and ongoing cultural treasure of Hawai'i. These quilts demonstrate both the rich tradition of this textile art and its continuing strength in the realm of contemporary art.
