Quiltmaking & The Great Depression

'Soft Covers for Hard Times' describes the rich, exciting story of quiltmaking during the Great Depression. This volume recounts the burst of activity in quiltmaking, as well as the surprising array of colourful, pastel quilts during this period. Much of this activity was rooted in the Colonial Revival in art and design that began in the 1910s.

Included are:
- careful documentation of materials, method of construction, and history of each featured quilt
- biographical sketches of the quiltmakers
- interviews with Depression Era quiltmakers
- patterns for Depression Era quilts
- illustrations from newspapers, magazines, books and newspapers of the period
- cotton sacks (for tobacco, sugar, flour, chicken feed, salt and so forth) and their use in quiltmaking
- an Appendix on how to date quilts from the period.

An entire chapter is devoted to the role of needlework and quilt designer Anne Champe Orr in translating the Colonial Revival to quiltmaking.

Includes colour illustrations.
