💕💕It’s All in the Fabric!!! 💕💕
( See Judi’s business card above 👆🏽)
A needle and thread are used to join two or more layers of material to make a quilt.
You can do this by hand…or sewing machine.
The process is repeated across the entire area… while adding more pieces of fabric…
Women host “quilting bees” or quilting parties…where multiple people could work on one quilt…
The community of women… would also come together to make quilts for wedding and baby shower gifts… house warmings…to bring comfort to those sick or ailing…and to make things more FESTIVE…for holidays!!!
Quilting creates extremely unique bed spreads, art quilt wall hangings, clothing, and a variety of textile products.
Here’s another interesting fact: The earliest known surviving European bed quilt… is from late fourteenth century Sicily. It was made of linen and padded with wool.
In American Colonial times, quilts were predominantly wholecloth quilts–-a single piece of fabric layered with batting and backing…held together with fine needlework quilting.
Quilt making was very common in the late 18th century…and early years of the 19th. Most women were busy spinning, weaving and sewing in order to clothe their families..,
During the wedding ceremony…the quilt is placed around the shoulders of a couple… as a symbol of “UNITY” between the two families…
It’s a reminder to the couple… that they’ll ~ALWAYS~ be covered in warmth… and L❤️VE… from both families….
They were hung outside homes…as a secret signal for “safe houses…”
—> Back to modern times....
Quilts have maintained a steady popularity for dazzling styles… and designs…in the “new millineum… ”
….but when you really get to the heart ❤️ of it all… It’s one of the most personal ways you can showcase your family history…and even frame it… to protect forever… and ever!
