Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics  "Empowering Women One Quilt at a Time"  You can look long and hard and you won't find an object more central to the history of women than the quilt. In this episode we look at the quilt's historical and current roles as (among others) an avenue of personal expression, a sly medium of social and political opinion, and a building block of financial security. Unique among objects, quilts are both lowly "women's work" and great art. D

Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics  "Quilt Scholarship: Romance and Reality"  The history of quilt scholarship in America is more relevant-and far more interesting-than some might think. To begin with, there was once a time when it wasn't very scholarly at all. Turns out that the quilt was so beloved, so central to the myth of American life, that many scholars failed to debunk the legends and folk lore it had engendered. D
