      This study examines the domestic production of whole-cloth
      quilts and the transition of this quilt form from a high-style
      possession of the economic elite in the eighteenth century to a
      traditional bedcover among rural families in the nineteenth
      century.

      Refreshments will be provided during the discussion of the
      paper. Afterwards, a supper -- with wine, barbeque chicken, and
      baby-back ribs -- will be served in the dining room of the
      Goddard-Daniels House at $16.00 per person. If you wish to stay
      for supper, please send your check in the correct amount to
      arrive at AAS by Wednesday, May 7
