    schema:description "Lone Stars is the result of an ambitious three-year search for fine old Texas quilts still privately owned and made or brought to the state between the year the Texas Republic came into being and its centennial. The authors had been told by "authorities" that finding really fine quilts in what had been a rough frontier area was quite unlikely. But page after page of visually stunning quilts prove with a vengeance that experts can be wrong. Here "lone star" does not refer to the well-known quilt pattern but rather to the fact that each of the 62 quilts pictured is the "star" work of someone who may have not known she was creating a masterpiece. For each quilt there is a full-page color illustration, accompanying documentation, and, when available, personal information about the maker.--Library journal"@en ;
