Quilting

Quilting

Quilting can take many forms – from traditional quilts, to art quilts to modern quilts made by hand or machine or both!

Quilts can be made as bed covers, or throws, but also as pieces of art to enjoy. A quilt is defined as three layers of textiles held together with thread. Traditionally, a quilt was made with a top layer of fabric that was pieced into a design, with a middle layer of batting or other warm material and a backing of fabric that could either be a single piece of fabric, or pieced.
