Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615453759, DVD)

The nine-part documentary series will change the way you think about quilts. It's an exploration of quilts with capital Q that takes you on an amazing journey. Episode by episode, this series introduces new ideas and uncovers the unsuspected size and depth of quilt culture. Delve into the inner workings of the art world, explore behind the scenes in the marketplace, and journey into the complicated, kaleidoscopic world of quilts: explore two centuries of history; watch as women gain power from their handiwork; consider the nature of art itself; and more. The DVD set also includes bonus features that will not be shown with the series on TV, including: The Swing; A Young Collector; Why This Series?; Dancing Quilts; Cheap Date; Judging a Book by its Cover; Antique Shows: The Back Side, and more.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:43 -0400)

"The series takes a fresh look at quilts and spreads the word about their unique position at the center of a startlingly broad grid of topics, ranging from women's studies to the contemporary art market"--Publisher's website.
