Comfort and Glory, written by Katherine Jean Adams, the quilt curator at the Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin, introduces an outstanding collection of American Quilts and quilt history, the Winedale Quilt Collection. This volume showcases 115 quilts-nearly one-quarter of the collection-through stunning color photographs (including details) and essays about each quilt's history and construction. Each quilt tells a story that is integral to America's history. Related documents and material culture objects from the Briscoe Center's collections-quilting templates, a painted bride's box, sheet music, a home-spun dress, a brass sewing bird, and political ephemera among them-enrich the stories of many of the quilts.
