The style descriptions allow a novice to use them successfully, and the initiated will be glad to have it when ever they need a memory boost. The descriptions show a style’s changes over time when you read across the chart, indicating nuances and when a style stops being made. The eras charted are 1775-1830, 1830-1870, and 1870-1900 on the blue Guide and 1900-1920 and 1920-1950 on the green Guide with a checklist on the front to help you rapidly determine if a quilt is 20th century or 19th century.
They are portable easy to use fold-out charts (like maps), about quilts commonly made in America and found on the market here. Either one can fit in your purse, glove compartment and bookshelf. Both charts are made of durable materials and will last a very long time with continued use, yet you can add your notes if wanted. The information will not grow old, even when the guide is! Use the Guides alone to identify and date your quilts and tops. When it’s convenient, use them with a fabric ID book too.
On the website viewers can click on 42 different quilts in a slideshow, to read a partial preview of what the Guides would tell them, as if they were out bidding or shopping. It’s a fun website and informative, including How to Date Quilts by Style, Places to Use the Guides,
and an article about dating quilts and textiles with eagles on them, including kits.
