The Film

Hopi Quilts tells the story of quilts in historic and modern Hopi life. Since missionaries introduced the American craft of quilting to Hopi women more than 100 years ago, simple patchwork bed-coverings have evolved into contemporary works of art. Hopi Quilts visits quilters on the remote Hopi mesas of northern Arizona, and shows how Hopi artisans have adopted the American quilting tradition and made it their own.
