    With the search on another thread about a quilt in a movie, I've been wondering... again, if anyone had any idea if a pattern or photos of the quilt in the Winona Rider film "How to Make An American Quilt" were available.

    I absolutely love this film and this quilt and would love to (eventually) make a quilt like this. Also, would like to know a bit of it's background.... how big is it, what backing did they use, is it made by a quilting guild etc...

    Anyone got any information?

    I noticed it's available used. I've bought several used books from Amazon and been very satisfied. I figure it's no different from using a library book and you can usually choose from good/slightly used/like new quality.

    Thank you so much. The information and link are very much appreciated.
    Now I know what book I'm looking for, I'll go hunting being as it's out of stock at amazon, but I'm definitely going to have this book as soon as possible. It looks a really interesting read.
