The Quilts of Virginia 1607 - 1899: the Birth of America Through the Eye of a Needle.
Paula, along with Barbara Tricarico, Bunnie Jordan, Maren Lindberg, Hazel Carter and Joan McGowen co-authored the book on Virginia's quilts. The book is based on the Virginia Documentation Project sponsored by the Virginia Consortium of Quilters. This new book anticipates Virginia’s 400th anniversary in 2007 by presenting over 270 beautiful historic quilts and ephemera in over 420 color and vintage photographs. From quilted armor of the 17th century to crazy quilts of the 19th century, these personal family and museum treasures include the homespun work of slaves and the stitches of First Ladies. The eight Virginia-born U. S. presidents are represented here, with work from George Washington’s great great grandmother to quilting by Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. The contents derive from the study of more than 3,000 quilts statewide that were meticulously examined by the Virginia Consortium of Quilters' Documentation Project. This book is an inspiration to today's quilters as well as an important contribution to quilting history and Virginia heritage.
