The 45 crib quilts, baby quilts, and doll quilts in this book date from 1840 to 1940. Most have never been published before or since. All are chosen by the author for their sentimental style, sense of whimsy, dimension, and movement, and strong graphic appeal. With the actual-size patterns and step-by-step directions in this book, a small amount of fabric, a lap, and a weekend, anyone will be inspired and ready to create her own great little quilt. For quiltmakers, quilt collectors, and quilt lovers, the quilts may be little, but the rewards are great.
