America from the heart was an incredible, spontaneous exhibit of quilts made in response to the events of 9-11. It shared a message of sorrow, unity, and hope from quilters all over the world.
These quilts are truly works from the heart, created in the six weeks following the terrorist attacks as an expression of the artists? immediate and agonized feeling. Houston?s international quilt festival served as the setting for this heart wrenching exhibit.
Now the quiltmakers of America: From the Heart share their work with you in this full-color exhibit catalog. Their quilts are both moving and a true declaration of America?s strength and patriotism.
This includes images of 270 quilts with heartfelt statements from the quilters who created them.
