Eerste zin van het voorwoord:
The heart and craft of American quiltmaking was born of the necessity for warm bed coverings among early settlers. As it developed, it transcended its humble beginnigns and rose to artistic heighths in the hands of these quilters. The forms used to express love and beauty and pride of workmanschip were veried. From patchwork to appliqué to whole cloth, qults were made in a myread of patterns, colors and fabrics. Contemporary quilters carry on the proud tradition, recording the lights and colors of their lives as they see them.”
