A preposition is a word that often answers the questions, where? and how? The preposition in your sentence is “by.”

How can people touch the past? BY means of quilts. That answer is also a prepositional phrase.

Here are some common prepositions: as, when, over, under, by, at.

A good way to remember prepositions is this phrase…

The plane flew ___ the cloud.

You can say it went UNDER, OVER, BELOW, or BETWEEN.

Any word that can fell in this blank is a preposition. Also this is a prepositional phrase when you get to that part of English.
