Quilts jellemzők

The construction of quilts and bedcovers in America dates back to earliest settlement days, when the scarcity of yard goods necessitated making imaginative use of any available scraps of cloth. Early quilters gathered together for companionship while they worked even the tiniest bits of fabric into intricate patterns for bed furnishings. Quilters still gather together for companionship (but under far different conditions), carrying on the tradition of creating something lovely and useful for the home.
