This fascinating odyssey through three vital decades in quiltmaking history is lavishly laced with quilt photos and quotes from well-known professionals. The author's journey highlights many of the people, events, and quilts that have brought, and continue to bring, so much pleasure and comfort to quilters' lives. The chapters in this beautiful volume cover the quilting community, the 'fabric explosion, ' and the development of piecing, applique, and quilting, rounded out by story quilts, art quilts, and comments on the future of quiltmaking in America. Eleanor Levie, a seasoned quilt book editor, interviewed dozens of quilt teachers, lecturers, judges, authors, and other VIPs to compile this exciting mix of facts, stories, and quilts. It will entertain, enlighten, and inspire quilters for many decades to come. To ensure the accuracy of the information presented, the manuscript was reviewed by a board of professionals, including quilt historian Merikay Waldvogel, who also provided the foreword; quiltmaker, teacher, and historian Gerald Roy; and AQS executive show director, judge, and author Bonnie K. Browning.
