|Quilter's Muse Publications
Welcome to the website of Patricia and James Cummings. We have been online since 2002 posting
many files about Redwork embroidery, antique quilts, and quilt and textile history as well as reader
contributions. Life has a way of changing and so it has with online activities. Today, we more often
post to our Google blog or to our Facebook page. Look for us on Facebook at "Quilter's Muse
Publications." We post frequent updates about the quilt world. See our latest quilt show review of the
29th Quilt Exhibition at the Billings Farm & Museum.
To find files on this website, please use the "site search" function or visit the categories "History,"
"Music," or "Quilts." There are many files that do not show up in the categories so if there is a topic
that interests you, check the "site search" and the topic may just show up.
