By Laurel Jacobs on September 28, 2003
The Mountain Artisans Quilting Book is the best book on the contemporary adaptation of the old craft of quilting. It is a basic instructional book combining Alfred Allen Lewis's lucid instructions with the Coty-Award-winning designs created by Dorothy Weatherford for the Mountain Artisans. At the same time, it tells the heart-warming story of the Mountain Artisans: how the famous West Virginia cooperative was started by a group of idealistic young women, among them Sharon Percy Rockefeller; how their efforts to market the products of a centuries old craft overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to achieve national recognition and the highest accolade of all, the Coty Award.

The how-to-do-it sections of the book feature photographic step-by-step instructions on: traditional patchwork patterns, stitching, applique, hemming, binding, tufting, basting, tracing, design placement, bordering, quilting; application of the handicraft to making toys, pillows, clothing and placemats; new approaches to design, with helpful hints on color and placement that will enable the reader to make original designs.

In addition to a detailed explanation of the new techniques developed by the Mountain Artisans, the book features an investigation of the traditional methods of making the old quilts and patchworks, examples of which have found their way into great museum collections.
