Quilting has existed for thousands of years, spanning the globe,
practiced by women as well as men, and bringing together communities
and generations. "Friendship" explores quilting, as an art form as
well as an item of utility, tracing its early history from a cave
in Mongolia to patchwork bedcoverings transported in overland wagon
trains to present-day exhibits at renowned museums.
