Quilt History

 
     Quilts began many years ago as a necessity to survive.  It was part of everyday life.  People couldn't just run to the store to buy blankets or clothing.  In the past, a quilt would be pieced together from the left over (scraps) of fabric that one might have made clothes out of. 
    Quilt pieces were also taken from the best parts of old worn-out clothes.  Can you  imagine that you would have to save the best part of your clothes now, and have to make a blanket for your bed, just to keep warm? (they didn't have heaters either)  Quilted jackets were even used as armor for soldiers.
     But as time went on, and with the creative minds of humans, quilts are much different now.  Many are made to hang on a wall as art decor.  While others are still used to keep warm on a bed or throw across a sofa for cool nights while watching television.  My how things have changed!  There are so many new ideas and techniques that when you combine these with art, creativity, and personality,  some quilts today are breathless to see. If you want to learn more about the history of quilts  I found a really neat website, it's  www.antiquequiltdating.com In fact some of my students quilts were chosen to be on this page (click below) http://www.antiquequiltdating.com/Kids_Can_Sew_and_Craft.html
