Quilting Then & Now by Karen Bates Willing & Julie Bates Dock. il Sarah Morse.
Now & Then Publications: Ashland, OR, 1994.

This is a nice introduction to quilting, past and present. A woman who industriously quilts for her family explains to a neighbor's child all about quilts. The story is in rhyme. The illustrations show many quilt patterns and have actual quilt photos superimposed over the drawings. There is a great sense of family throughout the story, and there is a cat in every drawing.
