Patterns of progress : quilts in the machine age by Barbara Brackman( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patterns of Progress: Quilts in the Machine Age examines quilts as clues to women's lives, especially women who lived and worked in the West, and to the changes they experienced because of the invention and accessibility of the sewing machine. Amply illustrated with more than 50 beautiful color images, author Barbara Brackman's lively text situates quilts within the culture of the American West. In such a context, quilts become more than just bed coverings: they are cultural artifacts, revealing much about women's lives, their roles and their perceptions of the world. Brackman also examines the ways in which the sewing machine changed women's aesthetic perceptions of the beauty of their work, and how that aesthetic has evolved to the present day

Patchwork Souvenirs of the 1933 World's Fair is the story of the largest quilt exhibition ever organized: the Sears National Quilt Contest held in 1933 during Chicago's Century of Progress Exposition. The result of several years' research, the book presents a thoughtful picture of quiltmaking in the early twentieth century and of what happened when the art of quiltmaking collided with commercial opportunism. Attracting quilters nationwide, the Sears contest offered a grand prize of $1,200 for what was to be America's champion quilt; total prize money would be $7,500. More than 25,000 quilts were entered in local and regional contests nationwide, and the 30 winners from those contents were put on public display in the Sears Pavilion at the fair
