It is the final stop in the tour and I really appreciate everyone that came along for the trip to announce the release of the Triplett Sisters fifth book, “Hidden Treasures, Quilts from 1600 to 1860, Rarely Seen Pre-Civil War Textiles from the Poos Collection.” If you missed any of the earlier stops in the tour, check the bottom of the blog for web addresses so you can visit those stops too.
The Chintz Coverlets and Quilts chapter of our book was a “must be included” with our love of chintz. We also managed to squeeze in some birds into this section. Maybe instead of a where’s waldo, we should have a where’s birdie challenge? It was also our honor to include a mezzaro re-purposed as a quilt. If you’d like to learn about a mezzaro, we explain it all in our book.
The big finish chapter is White Wholecloth, which truly were some of the hidden treasures of the Poos Collection. The idea of a trunk show featuring white textiles from the 1600s struck fear in my heart as I thought about traveling with these beauties. This section features boutis (French wholecloth) and American wholecloth quilts. We also included vermicelli, which sounds like it should be Italian wholecloth, but it is a type of French wholecloth simply named for the noodle. Hopefully this quick tour of the book means you are ready to have your own copy. Here is the link to purchase and we have a special price with free shipping, just for pre-sale. So, order your copy today!
