If you love African American improvisational quilts as much as I do, you'll want to get this book! Better yet, see the show at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego through November 6.
I know I won't be in San Diego soon, so I ordered it from the Museum store for $18.95. Well worth it! (Back cover)
It shows about 50 quilts collected by Corinne Riley of the Chicago Art Institute. She bought them on many trips to the South over 35 years. This is the first time these quilts have been shown in the U.S. (Back flap)
