F is for Friendship: A Quilt Alphabet

Written by Helen L. Wilbur
Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen

The art of quilting has existed for thousands of years, spanning the globe, and bringing together communities and generations. And every quilt tells a story--whether it’s the fabric used, the techniques employed in its construction, or design selected by its maker. 

F is for Friendship: A Quilt Alphabet examines the subject of quilting, as an art form as well as an item of utility, tracing its early history from a cave in Mongolia to patchwork bed coverings transported in overland wagon trains to present-day exhibits at renowned museums. 

Topics include patterns, inventions, and fabric choices, as well as quilts as vehicles of American history. Readers young and old will gain a new appreciation for this art form in F is for Friendship.
