122 FOX, SANDI. Quilts: California Bound, California Made, 1840-1940.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A dazzling chronicle of early California quilts and quiltmakers. The richly diverse legacy of California's quilts is beautifully chronicled in words and images in this extraordinary collection spanning a century of quiltmaking. Here is the story of California's quilts, from those California bound—carried on the backs of mules and horses, in covered wagons, by ship or by train—to those California made, created on the farms and in villages and cities across the state. Whether to remember friends and family back home, mourn loved ones lost, record cultural and historical events, or illustrate their new surroundings, California's quiltmakers pieced, appliqud, embroidered, and embellished cloth in an astonishing variety of quilts and bedcovers. In this volume, contemporary letters, diaries, and historical records provide authentic accounts of the social, political, and cultural contexts in which California's quilts were brought west and worked there. The nuances of each quilt—the colors, stitches, and inked inscriptions—and the stories of the women whose skilled hands crafted them highlight the significance of the quilts and the elements that define them. Sandi Fox shows that while these cloth masterpieces played a role in the country's changing historical and cultural landscape, the techniques, patterns, and fabrics used to create them were, in fact, part of the seamless, unchanging tradition of American quiltmaking. Sandi Fox is former Collection Curator of Quilts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Associate Fellow, International Quilt Study Center, University of Nebraska; and Research Associate, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. She is the author of numerous books, articles, and exhibition catalogues in the field and curator of twelve major exhibitions of nineteenth-century American quilts in the United States and abroad. Her work as curator, author, and scholar has been supported by a number of important grants and fellowships, including those from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the Winterthur Museum. She and her husband live in Los Angeles.
