Signature Quilts: A Short Bibliography

This Sunday is the Jamboree Quilt Breakfast and I am honored to be speaking about a signature quilt top I own. My presentation Cigars, Murder and Women: Reconstructing a Signature Quilt's Community will be a look at signature quilts, their importance and some stories from one I am researching. I also will be bringing some other signature quilts with me.
