The American Museum in Britain's textile collection is recognized not only as the finest collection of American textiles in Europe but also as one that is equal to many collections in the United States. In addition to carpets, embroideries and furnishing fabrics, the Museum boasts an extensive collection of over 200 American quilts ranging from the 18th to the early 20th centuries. It includes prime examples of Whole Cloth quilts, Baltimore Album quilts, Log Cabin quilts and others of traditional patterns.

Fifty quilts from the museum's collection that illustrate a variety of techniques and textiles will be highlighted in this new book. The text will consist of both technical and historical information, and tell the quilt's 'story'. The images will feature overall views as well as details, capturing the crispness of the stitching and the differences in fabric textures.
