This is a book for grownup quilters. It's a book for the many accomplished quilters who are not looking for yet another project book with pages of detailed elementary instructions on how to make someone else's quilt. Rather, it's intended for quilters who are seeking ideas and inspiration for their own work. In my quilt related travels, I've had the pleasure of meeting many such veteran quilters. This book was also developed to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of my Beaver Island Quilt Retreats (BIQR). Quilters who come to these retreats come with the expectation that they will be provided with an abundance of ideas which will help them design their own original work. The new works in this book were made specifically to provide ideas and inspiration to support the 2008 BIQR theme of making abstract quilts in solids.

Mary Remington was just twenty-three years old when in 1815 she created a beautiful and intricate white work quilt in anticipation of her impending marriage. Mary's quilt, and the letters that she penned over the years to Peleg Congdon, first her fiance and then her husband, provide both an elegant framework for interpreting the outstanding quilt collection at Winterthur and a fascinating glimpse into life in nineteenth-century America. The themes of each chapter are drawn from Mary's letters, which describe how her life was affected by politics and war, the volatility of international trade and the growth of the American textile industry. Her letters also describe the literature she read, her decision to marry a man whose motives she questioned, the social difficulties she later experienced living apart from her husband and the pride she took in her family heritage, which is reflected in her quilt - the only known example of an American quilted coat of arms. With the strength of the collection falling into the period of the late 1700s and early 1800s, these rare survivals are themselves a grouping of unusual depth and beauty. young woman from a previous century and discover, through her quilt and letters, that the passing of time does little to alter human nature.
