Minnesota State Quilt Book

"Minnesota Quilts, Creating Connections to Our Past" showcases 150 quilts from the approximately 4,000 documented by the Minnesota Quilt Project during the past 20 years.

The story of the quilts is told through glorious color photographs, vintage black and white images and detailed, informative text. Drawing on oral interviews with quilters and the close study of Minnesota's classic quilts, MQ members Gail Bakkom, Jean Carlton, Patricia Cox, Laura Jelinek, Linda Kosfeld, Jean Loken, Elise Roberts and Kelly Willis explore the connections quilts have had to our history, our families and our everyday life.

Books are available at quilt shops, major book stores, and online.
