This book records the contributions of more than 500 people involved in quilting today. An old Chinese proverb states 'Preserve the old but know the new.' As you read the biographies of these quilters, you will see that the old traditional quiltmaking techniques are still being utilized. Yet, some qjilters are using new methods in their quiltmaking brought about by technology, such as the rotary cutter for faster cutting, computers for designing, and computerized sewing machines for accurate repetitive stitching and quilting.
