Quilting: An American Craft
McIntosh, Phyllis
English Teaching Forum, v44 n3 p39-45 2006
A quilt can warm a bed, decorate a wall, comfort a child in her crib or a soldier at war. A quilt also can tell a story, commemorate an event, honor the dead, unite a community, and reflect a culture. This article is an introduction to the American craft of quilting. The article describes what quilting is and the different types of quilts. It also discusses the meaning of quilts and how they are used in American society. A glossary of "quilt talk" and a list of websites of interest is included.
