Less than a century ago, housewives devoted hours to the day-in, day-out drudgery of sewing. Plain sewing was the production of clothing and linens for the household, the task that occupied women throughout their lives. Fancy sewing, the decorative arts such as embroidery and applique, filled women's leisure hours. Patterns of Progress: Quilts in the Machine Age examines quilts as clues to women's lives, especially women who lived and worked in the West, and to the changes they experienced because of the invention and accessibility of the sewing machine. Amply illustrated with more than 50 beautiful color images of quilts, Barbara Brackman's lively text situates quilts within the culture of the American West. In such a context, quilts become more than just bed coverings: they are cultural artifacts, revealing much about women's lives, their roles, and their perceptions of the world. Brackman also examines the ways in which the sewing machine changed women's aesthetic perceptions of the beauty of their work, and how that aesthetic has evolved to the present day.

"The New York Quilt Project is dedicated to a remarkable group of artists who created a significant body of folk art through the use of traditional tools: needle, thread, and fabric. Through tireless handiwork and creative energy they have warmed generations of beds and hearts, and in the process have left a magnificent legacy." "The Museum of American Folk Art has played a leading role for many years in bringing American quilts to the public's attention by collecting and exhibiting them in the United States and abroad. Thus, it became a mission of the Museum, as a New York institution, to initiate the New York Quilt Project and locate, document, preserve, and create an archive for the quilts of its home state." "New York Beauties, containing 150 color plates and 56 halftones, is the ongoing progress report of the work of the Project, and it is the collaborative effort of Phyllis A. Tepper, director of the Project, her co-author, Jacqueline M. Atkins, and Lee Kogan, Research Coordinator for the Project. In addition to its wonderful illustrations, New York Beauties provides a fascinating social history of New York State as a stimulating background for a deeper appreciation of the quilts which, after all, are both documents of history and witness to the lives of ordinary beings, for written across their surfaces are stories of personal relationships within families and communities. The astonishing art of quilts and their family warmth inevitably touch us all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
