I’ve just finished watching the two DVD set of Why Quilts Matter. I think it’s due to be shown on PBS in the states but as we are unlikely ever to see it on TV here I shelled out some of my hard-earned cash and bought the DVDs. I think it was worth the money, I really do. I enjoyed every minute of it. While I warmed to Shelley Ziegart I did find her reading of the cue cards a little wooden but what she had to tell us was so interesting that I forgave this minor fault. The quilts shown are gorgeous and the history, the politics and the wealth of other information was just fascinating.

If you’re wondering what to put on your Christmas list this would be a great addition. It cost me US$50 including postage.

However, if you really want to know Why Quilts Matter then take a look at these photos and you’ll get the real picture.
