About the Author:

Eileen Jahnke Trestain was raised in a small town outside Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has always spent much of her time in art and craft pursuits. At the age of 10, her grandmother introduced her to quilting, which began a lifelong interest. She continued her interest in quilting and began to collect and study quilting patterns. With the encouragement of friends, Eileen began producing her own line of patterns under the business name of Peonies Needlework Crafts.

From Library Journal:

In dating antique quilts, fabric identification takes on paramount importance. This practical handbook compiled by Trestain, an experienced quilt appaiser, includes photos of more than 1000 color fabric swatchesmany from the authors collectioncovering the period from 1800 to 1960. Trestain devotes a chapter to each of six different eras: pre1830, the settling of the West, the first centennial, the turn of the century, the Roaring Twenties, the Depression, and World War II. She prefaces the fabric swatches for each period with historical background and information about print styles, colors, and quilts of the period. This should appeal to quilt show visitors, fabric collectors, and quilt and vintage clothing collectors and is an essential purchase for textile collections and large public libraries.
