Back Cover Information

American: From the Heart was an incredible, spontaneous exhibit of quilts made in response to the events of September 11, 2001. It shared a message of sorrow, unity and hope from quilters all over the world.

These quilts are truly works from the heart, created in the six weeks following the terrorist attacks as an expression of the artists' immediate, agonized feelings. Houston's International Quilt Festival served as the setting for this heart-wrenching exhibit.

Now the quiltermakers of America: From the Heart share their work with you in this full-color exhibit catalog. Their quilts are both moving and a true declaration of America's strength and patriotism.

  • Images of 270 quilts with heartfelt statements from the quilters who created them.
  • Forward by Karey Bresenhan, founder of Quilt, Inc. and organizer of International Quilt Festival
  • C&T Publishing and Quilts, Inc. are proud to donate all profits from sales of American from the Heart to Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund.
