About This Item

No longer simply bed coverings to keep people warm, quilts made in nineteenth-century America were often works of art. Improvements in the economy and advances in textile manufacturing allowed women of means to purchase fabrics in colors and patterns of their choosing to express their creativity. Patterns were handed down through families and religious communities, or were created for special occasions such as weddings. Medallion styles feature a central image; log cabin patterns are made from narrow strips of fabric pieced around a square; and crazy quilts have the appearance of random piecework in silk, satin, and velvet, with plenty of embellishments embroidered or painted on top. The quilts in this calendar are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. All of Pomegranate s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® and manufactured by an FSC certified printer. FSC certification promotes responsible forest management by ensuring that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable.
