At the heart of the musical is a book ‘The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art’, created by Norma Bradley & Allen P. Cooper. In this work were collected stories of real immigrants who mastered the Wild West. The authors used records from the diaries of women who left after their husbands to distant uninhabited regions. Artwork of B. Damashek and M. Newman consisted of separate stories, almost unrelated to each other. Around women, creating a quilt, these stories were constantly reproduced. The actresses playing the daughters were transformed into other characters, regardless of their gender.

The inside flap of the dust jacket has such a nice description. It reads: "Here, in plain-spoken words, are the stories of the quilters of Texas and New Mexico. their average age is seventy-three; their families were pioneer settlers of the land; they are women who have spent their lives piecing together bits of comfort and color amid the harsh surrounding of the American Southwest. Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley Buferd decided to let the quilters speak for themselves. Their reminiscences and reflections, their spirit and strength are captured here, along with dazzling full-color photographs of their quilts juxtaposed with black-and-white photographs of the stark landscape in which the quilts were produced." This book is a special read.

The Quilters: Women and the Domestic Art, an Oral History is an inspirational story that looks at quilting and women. I was lent this book by a friend at a patchwork group in Australia. From the time I picked up this book to the time I finished it nothing else mattered. To read about women's lives through the medium of patch working and quilting was quite amazing.
I think in todays modern world we have forgotten that quilting is not only about making something beautiful but is also about not wasting anything. It is also about something functional. Quilters are also about love. Love of quilting and love for the people we make them for.
I also learnt that you do not need to have a lot of money to make something of wonder and joy for people you love or even people you have never met. You just have to feel the need to do it. Also, I am grateful for all the modern conveniences we have for quilting today.
This book was so good that after I finished reading it I immediately logged on to Amazon to buy a copy for myself and my friends. If you would like to read a heart warming story and then to share it with your friends then this is the book for you.

I bought a copy of this book years ago, and loved it. When my last child was born I gave my book to the midwife as a 'thankyou' gift - and have always regretted not having a second copy for myself. So...I finally treated myself to another copy. The women's voices speak to me just as clearly after all these years. This is a very special book.
