Back Cover Information

A unique slice of the history of the American West, The Quilt That Walked to Golden is a window into the lives, trials, and friendships of generations of Colorado women who recorded their stories in the quilts they left behind. Written by master storyteller Sandra Dallas, this book will captivate everyone interest in the American West, historical American fiction, or vintage and contemporary American quilts.

"This quilt not only walks, it talks. And no quilt could have a better author to make it 'talk' than Sandra Dallas, A great book!"
Pat Schroeder, President, Association of American Publishers and former Member of Congress (Denver, Colo,)

"With an historian's eye for detail and a novelist's gift for storytelling, Sandra Dallas masterfully illuminates the hopes, struggles, and triumphs of Colorado quilters from pioneer days to the present. The Quilt That Walked to Golden is a feast to be savored by quilt lovers and history buffs alike."
Jennifer Chiaverini, author of The Sugar Camp Quilt

"Reading The Quilt That Walked to Golden gave me goosebumps. I am a native of Colorado and this wonderful history brought back memories of stories my grandmother told me of when, at age sixteen, she traveled by covered wagon to homestead in the West."
Jenny Beyer, an internationally known quilter, fabric designer, and author.

"Like a master seamstress, Sandra Dallas has sifted through scraps in journals, letters, and remembrances to create a patchwork history of the women of Colorado. At last, the women of the West leave their mark."
Jan Magee, Quilters Newsletter Magazine
