Historical Perspective of Quilting

Early quilts provide a glimpse into the history of quilting as well as the history of the United States.


Quilting has been enjoying a resurgence thanks to a renewed interest in craft and process driven arts. The fast pace of modern life, our short attention span and lack of tactile contact, and the disposable nature of most everything we touch has all contributed to a new generation looking to find fulfillment in the material arts such as woodworking, weaving, and quilting, among others.


Part of the appeal of quilting is its international, diverse history, rooted in necessity (need for bed covers, and warmth), economy (reusing scraps and discarded fabric), and ultimately the need for human self expression.
