Synopsis by Beth Deki

PBS Home Video takes a look at the history of quilt-making in America. This documentary begins with the quilt-making of the early settlers and traces the symbolic meaning to family history. The secret art of quilt-making is followed to the modern quilt shows in Paducah, KY, and Houston, TX. It is a close-up look at the art, the artists, and the diverse variety in both.
