Louisa May Alcott: Quilts of Her Life, Her Work, Her Heart

Louisa May Alcott: Quilts of Her Life, Her Work, Her Heart

by Terry Clothier Thompson

Authored by quilt historian Terry Clothier Thompson, this book looks at the Civil War through the eyes of Louisa May Alcott. Louisa is best known for writing children’s stories and Little Women, but she was also very involved with the anti-slavery movement, rights for women, and served as a Civil War nurse.

The heart of the book is the “Louisa” quilt. In this quilt there are nine “cameo” blocks that tell the story of Louisa and her family’s life in New England. Also, as part of the quilt, there are six pieced blocks from the Civil War era that can be used to make soldiers quilts.

Along with the “Louisa” quilt, the book contains patterns for three authentic soliders quilts and another magnificent appliqued quilt called “Concord, Mass.”

Softcover 9" x 11", 88 pages.
