DESCRIPTION
Many American women made warm and attractive quilts to honor and benefit US soldiers during the period 1940-1945, either as outright gifts or as raffle items to raise money for the war effort. This book reflects extensive original research of newspaper and magazine articles of the era, and authenticates the patterns and designs available to quilt makers, anchoring the quilts historically in time. Color photos and descriptive text identify many colorful and patriotic quilts made for donation to the Red Cross and organizations such as Bundles for Britain. When possible,original patterns and designs that inspired the quilts are included.The quilts can now be interpreted from factual and objective perspectives, enhancing their historic and emotional importance.
