Simply Quilts

Simply Quilts.

~The technical term "quilting" refers to the technique of joining at least two fabric layers by stitches or ties.~ 

I have a few quilts that are tied.You don't see it so much anymore.

As eras pass you see more and more modern artists putting their creative spin on the art. Many leaning toward the more artistic and contemporary designs.

Today's quilters are using their machines as opposed to the hours and hours artists put into hand sewing. Quilting designs are art in themselves, every piece fits just perfect to form patterns and intricate shapes.

However you spin it, Quilts are timeless and meant to be treasured and handed down, like old books. Initially, meant to be used in bed to keep you warm and to look pretty, quilts have found their place in our hearts and now are displayed on walls and museums for everyone to enjoy.

We'd love to hear from you in the comments below. Do you recognize some of the patterns in the images? What is your quilting style? Email us your quilt pictures. I'll do a follow up post with some of your pictures and stories.
