Their sharing of designs and construction techniques led to the development of a distinctive regional quilt style that has never been duplicated in any other region of the state or country. Sue C. Cummings documents several unique characteristics of these Miami Valley album quilts, such as the appliqued Miami Valley Eagle and other design motifs. Nowhere else in the United States have so many similar eagle album quilts been documented for such a specific time period and in such a narrow locale. While other areas have their favored quilt patterns and traditions, Cummings\'s investigation and collection of this remarkable grouping is a landmark moment in quilting history.\" \"Album Quilts of Ohio\'s Miami Valley presents more than two dozen never-before-published color photographs of these folk art album quilts. Relying on thirty-five years of research, Cummings builds the case for each quilt from family genealogies and interviews, census records, local histories, and cemetery visits. Quilt historians, as well as genealogy and history buffs, will value the book as an inspired how-to guide for its impeccable research and for Cummings\'s ingenious tracking down of the clues in the sometimes hidden messages in the quilting. Beautifully illustrated and affordably priced, this book is a valuable addition to the Ohio Quilt Series and will appeal to quilt researchers across the country who may discover a quilt from the Miami Valley of Ohio far from its place of origin.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
