A quick google image search unveiled a more contemporary usage of the technique:

The quilts on display were impressive in their precision, use of color, and design. We were also privileged to admire some other type of quilts representative of some of the museum's permanent collection.
We hope more can join us in October as we meet at the Arlington Public Library to learn more about handwork in quilting.
