Created for warmth, the quilts are no less than works of art, carefully and thoughtfully stitched by homemakers with an acute understanding of graceful and animated design. The twelve magnificent quilts in this calendar--made in Pennsylvania, Iowa, Indiana, and Illinois, mostly between 1890 and 1940--are from the collection of New York Citys American Folk Art Museum, home to more than five thousand artworks spanning three centuries.Published with the American Folk Art Museum.
