Today's new quilters have no idea of the primitive beginnings and early struggles of the modern quilt revival that began in the '70's. They will enjoy reading this book about the development of new products, fabrics, ideas and activities connected to quilting, which many take for granted. We 'old timers' will recall these early days of a 'new/old' movement in which many women and men, not knowing they had so much creativity within, surprised themselves with a new interest that forced it to the surface. Quilting is a rewarding activity that does not seem to wane and will probably develop more amazing surprises in the future.

Don't miss Eleanor Levie's American Quiltmaking, 1970-2000. She's exceeeded expectations in conveying how American quilts have grown in stature from 1970-2000 and made it an exciting adventure to read how all of this came about. Her research is impecable and the book reads like a story, not a dull history book!

Eleanor Levie does an excellent job of explaining 'how quiltmaking caught the fancy of liberated women of the 1970's'. This book is an enjoyable look back over the past 30 some years on this latest quilt revival modern day quilters are enjoying. It is quite remarkable to see just how much progress and changes we have made in our fabrics, tools and techniques. Eleanor's vision of the future of quiltmaking was very encouraging and uplifting. All in all this book was a terrific read. I am the editor of a quilting organization's newsletter and I liked this book so much I ran an interview with Eleanor in our newsletter.
