About this product
- DescriptionQuilts are a lot like people. They are t overnight undertakings. They seldom turn out the way they were intended. Colors change when you run short of fabric. Edges misalign where you least expect it.When Carol Nielson and her husband inherited an album quilt half a quilt, to be precise she had idea of the journey on which the fragile folds of appliques and painstaking stitches would call her. Created in 1857 by the women of the Salt Lake City LDS 14th Ward, the quilt was raffled off to raise money for the poor, the Perpetual Immigrating Fund, and for various Mormon charitable enterprises. Each block was designed and signed by one of the women, many of whom were wives of leading church authorities.Nielson s desire to find the quilt s other half, and to find out more about the women whose legacy she had both literally and figuratively inherited, led her back in time through countless lives of hardship, joy, and spiritual conviction in the face of adversity.Filled with detailed photographs of the quilt and images of those who stitched the blocks, this book is a stirring read, a rich and beautiful testimony to women whose hands shaped t only thread and cloth, but also a state, forging a community with their pioneer spirit.
