‘Craft in America: Quilts’
When to watch: Friday at 9 p.m., on PBS.
Quilts! They are an often-overlooked record of society: artistic expression, cultural vessel, household ware and historical document all in one. This engrossing installment of “Craft in America” profiles quilters working in a variety of traditions, all of whom emphasize the political nature of their discipline. This show is maybe the most PBS-y show on PBS these days, so much so that the PBS king Ken Burns himself shows up to discuss his love of quilts. (Check local listings for broadcast times.)
