Quilts Presidential and Patriotic
By Sue Reich
Throughout our country's history, quiltmakers have honored America's presidents in their quiltmaking.
Featuring more than 330 images with insightful explanations, this book looks at presidential quilts and
patriotic quilts that have been made by American quilters.
From the presidencies of George Washington through Barack Obama, the quilts- along with intriguing
quilt-related comments from newspapers of the times- help us enjoy American history, and reflect on how
quilt history has chosen to remember the US presidents.
Also highlights are 43 gorgeous newly-made quilts representing each of the United States presidents to date (published 2016).
Each measures 24 inches square, and is constructed in a pattern and fabric historically accurate to the leader's presidential
term in office; their makers are quilt historians and enthusiasts affiliated with the American Quilt History Group.
