In September 1991, Sherrie Davidson began the Heirloom Quilt Survey on PEI. Her goal was to document and preserve the rich island history of quilt making from its beginning in the 1700s to 1970. After almost twenty years, this book, Quilts of Prince Edward Island , is the result
In her quest, Davidson visited over one hundred island homes, each containing memories, often very personal, of family life on PEI through the years. Quilts of Prince Edward Island offers examples of every aspect of island quiltmaking and also documents the story of island quilt making over the past three centuries.
