From 1888 to 1918, a community of Miami Valley neighbors and relatives made album presentation quilts to celebrate life passages. Their sharing of designs and construction techniques led to the development of a distinctive regional quilt style that has never been duplicated in any other region of the state or country. Album Quilts of Ohio’s Miami Valley presents more than two dozen never-before-published color photographs of these folk art album quilts.

“Part textile history, part genealogy, and part detective story, this book shares Cummings’s research journeys while giving the reader a look into life in southwestern Ohio around the end of the 19th century.”
