Overview

This book was the first book ever published in America on the subject of quilts and contains all the information one might want to know about the topic. The quilt has a tradition of long centuries of slow but certain progress. Its story is replete with incidents of love and daring, of sordid pilfering and generous sacrifices. The same type of handiwork that has sheltered the simple peasant from wintry blasts has adorned the great halls of doughty warriors. Complete with panoply of images and a wealth of interesting text, this book is a must-have for any quilting enthusiast. Marie Daugherty Webster was a business woman, quilt designer, and the author. Originally published in 1915, we are proud to republish this scarce book here with a new introductory biography of the author.
