Quilting & Textile Art
Quilting started as a way to use scraps in an attractive way to create blankets to keepyou warm. You didn't buy fabric specific to making a blanket because fabric purchases were reserved for clothing. Each quilt became of memory of clothes made.
Today quilting is not only practical but an art form. Bed quilts, wall hangings and artistic multi-media are a few uses today. Below are some links to various quilt types or methods to wet your appetite for this expressive way of sewing.
