THEIR STORY AND HOW
TO MAKE THEM
MARIE D. WEBSTER
The quilt is one of the most familiar and necessary articles in our households. It has a tradition of long centuries of progress and its story is replete with incidents of love and daring, of sordid pilferings and generous sacrifices.
As known to-day, the quilt is the result of combining two kinds of needlework.  The piecing and patching provide the maker with a suitable field for the display of artistic ability, while the quilting calls for particular skill in handling the needle. The fusing of these two kinds of needlework into a harmonious combination is a task that requires great patience and calls for talent of no mean order.
The purpose of this book is to tell the story of quilting and to present a few of the old masterpieces to the quilters of to-day.
