ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history of rose designs in quilts and quiltmaking's involvement in American Rose Society (ARS) conventions. According to the author, quilts have a long history that dates back to 3400 BC with an Egyptian ivory carving of a Pharaoh dressed in what appears to be a quilted garment. Japanese women mastered a form of quilting that uses a parched pattern called "Yosegiro" that could be the basis of "Crazy Quilts" in Europe in the Victorian era.
