NEW: Book Review of a book published in March 2015 - Art Quilts of the Midwest

A Yellow Work Treasure - a delightful background story about a rare antique quilt made with
yellow threads. This article is one of more than 90 written by Patricia Cummings that were
published in
The Quilter magazine. Early this year the magazine was declared bankrupt, a loss to
all in the quilt world who loved the magazine and looked forward to my many articles about quilt
history. At Quilter's Muse Publications, we love Bluework, Redwork, Green Work and other forms
of Outline Stitch Embroidery.
