The German immigrants to South-eastern Pennsylvania developed a rich and very colourful quilting heritage after they arrived in America. This book focuses on a rare subset of that tradition -- the patchwork pillowcase. If antique Pennsylvania quilts number in the thousands, patchwork pillowcases number in the hundreds. Gathered from private collectors and museums, the pillowcases presented here were made from about 1820 to 1920. Over 250 colour photographs showcase a huge assortment of nineteenth century printed fabrics used in both pieced and appliqué pillowcases. Quilt designs range from a simple four-patch to a complex carpenter's wheel, while colour schemes range from reserved red and white to bold pink and cheddar. This book will delight the quilt historian and inspire the quilt-maker.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are highAnd you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.Times were tough, but we made it through.These were times when people depended on one another, when they learned to take nothing for granted, and to recognize those things that were more important than the luxuries money could buy.
