The Spencer Museum of Art at The University of Kansas maintains an extensive collection of art, including about 180 quilts. In 2008 Barbara Brackman curated the exhibit Quilts: Flora Botanica. This book showcases the 27 quilts in that exhibit and examines the source and symbolism of each. The exhibit also included reproductions of quilts made by the Kaw Valley Quilters’ Guild. The book includes directions for making five of those quilts.
