Primarily a picture book for adults, this book includes many diary entries by women about their sewing activities. It is an interesting, but a very quick read. It has made me interested in the author's other books on this subject.

This is a follow up to a larger book called The American Quilt. The way this book is set up to look like you are seeing pages of a person's diary is adorable. This would be a great gift for any quilter but also someone interested in domestic history. It is a quick read but full of charm. I borrowed it from someone at a B&B to read but would love to chance on a copy one day...

This short book starts with an introduction explaining Kiracofe's interest in the work and then follows with a photo/quote book from women's diary entries surrounding their quilts. It's short and sweet. I had wanted more detail of these women and their quilts and their diary entries, but that was not really the intent of this short work (it's only about 61pages).
