Border to Border

Border to Border

Historic Quilts and Quiltmakers of Montana

Created: Saturday, May 9, 1925

Historic Quilts and Quiltmakers of Montana
by Annie Hanshew
introduction by Mary Murphy

The quilts featured in Border to Border chronicle Montana’s history over the last 150 years, telling stories of statehood, the struggle for women’s suffrage, two world wars, the Great Depression, and the recent past. This heavily illustrated book showcases unique and interesting Montana quilts and describes the life and times of the extraordinary people who created them.

Border to Border deftly and seamlessly stitches together the specifics of Montana’s history and the diversity of its women’s artistry. Lavishly illustrated and beautifully written, this book is a ‘must own’!”
—Janet Catherine Berlo, author of Quilting Lessons and Wild by Design

Border to Border is exactly what a quilt survey publication should be. Like a splendid antique quilt the book has bold impact, delicate detail and a story to tell. Dazzling quilts and first class photographs capture the history of a sprawling state with a variety of cultures.”
—Barbara Brackman, author of Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns and Encyclopedia of Appliqué
