Welcome to Quilter's Muse Publications'
This website, prepared by Patricia and James Cummings offers a wide variety of
information about needlework, quilts and history topics. We have posted educational
material for others to enjoy since 2002. The site was disabled for a couple months
last year (March 2012) when it was hacked by (known) assailants who infiltrated all
of our points of connection online. Little by little, we are restoring some of the files
that previously were featured here and are adding more as we go. Enjoy our efforts!
Check the quilts index page to see what's new but do not forget to view the history
index, and needlework index for additional pertinent articles. Folk Songs I have
recorded as well as other songs of historical import appear in the music file.
Patricia Cummings' last book, Sweetheart & Mother Pillows 1917-1945, (Atglen,
PA: Schiffer Publishing Ltd., 2011) is available in select bookstores and online.
Autographed copies can be ordered by writing to the author: Other books she has
written (three books about Redwork and its History, a book about quilt care, and
