Hidden Treasures Blog Tour Kickoff!

Posted by Lori Lee Triplett on May 31st 2019

The new book is coming, the new book is coming! Okay, so maybe it isn’t as catchy as the myth of Paul Revere yelling, “The British are coming,” but the Triplett Sisters are excited about our new book, Hidden Treasures, Quilts from 1600 to 1860: Rarely Seen Pre-Civil War Textiles from the Poos Collection. Even though this is our fifth book on quilts from the Poos Collection, we have several “firsts” with this new book, which is available in pre-sale right now. 

First, it has one hundred quilts in it, which is about three times as many quilts in our previous books. I could also mention it was about three times as much work too! (We were ready for a vacation when we finished the draft.) Second, we are doing a blog tour about our new book, which readers should like because we are giving away a free ebook every day of the tour. So, be sure to tour with me, read each of the blogs, and comment on each one, so you have multiple chances to win! Here is the schedule:

Another first for this book is that we have eight different categories of quilts; yes, eight! A few of the categories will be expected for those who know us. However, the first two chapters in the book might surprise you. We open the book with album quilts: Baltimore Album quilts, Quaker Album quilts, Southern Album quilts, and more. There is always so much history to discover when there are signatures and dates involved, which led to some new discoveries in this section. Thank you to every quilter that signs their name and adds a date. 

The next chapter is on wool quilts. I was pleased to receive two research grants to help with the research in this section of our book. Included in the wool textiles section is a rarer-than-rare pictorial table cover with forty-one scenes showing the formation of Vevay in the Indiana territory. Also in this chapter are some of the older textiles that have been remade into quilts. This chapter really showcases a wide variety of fiber-art techniques.

Don’t miss the remaining stops on the blog tour to learn more about the other chapters of the Triplett Sister’s upcoming book, Hidden Treasures, Quilts from 1600 to 1860: Rarely Seen Pre-Civil War Textiles from the Poos Collection.
