Historically, quilts were often created to celebrate special occasions such as weddings and births and as tokens of remembrance for friends and loved ones. Now, they are deeply valued works of art that are sought after for their beautiful compositions, their authenticity, and their sentimental associations. From the commemorative Arnett Leftovers Album Quilt, each block personalized with an embroidered signature, to the colorful Mosaic Soldiers Quilt, intricately hand pieced from wool uniform remnants, the 12 quilts featured in this calendar represent snapshots of life.
