Handmade Quilts are Made with Love and Make Great Family
Today's handmade quilts are more like a work of art than a bed
cover. With all the wonderfully artistic quilt patterns available
to quilters today, we are beginning to see some absolutely
breathtaking quilts glowing with character and personality. If
you are lucky enough, hopefully someone will give you a handmade
quilt that you can enjoy and pass on to your children.
When I hear the word "quilt", I think of the colorful
patchwork quilt draped across my Grandmother's bed. Her quilt
consisted of a well thought out arrangement of bright colors and
shapes that she had cut out from leftover fabric remnants. All
the patchwork pieces were lovingly sewn together into a
one-of-a-kind pattern creating a quilt that even today continues
to add a cheerful traditional charm to my own bedroom. My
Grandmother's handmade patchwork quilt is now a beautiful family
heirloom that will be cherished by many generations to come.
If you don't have a beautiful patchwork quilt to pass on as a
family heirloom, there are many quilt kits available to you. This
way you can make your own quilt instead of buying one and it will
have more sentimental value to your loved ones as it was handmade
If a handmade patchwork quilt is absolutely out of the
question for you, don't despair as there are plenty of quilts
available at linen shops or through online retailers. You may
even be able to find a beautiful handmade bed quilt at an
auction, flea market, or local bazaar.
Whatever kind of quilt appeals to you is going to look
stunning draped across your own bed. The unique look and textures
of each quilt will add a traditional, charming look to your
decor. You can find these colorful bed covers in a wide array of
sizes too. There are baby quilts for your little one's crib, and
child size quilts for your child's room.
Many of these beautiful home-made quilts are so stunning, that
they are worthy to be hung on a feature wall. Hours and hours of
time are put into the making of a typical quilt, so the next time
you are given one as a gift, be sure to show your
Check the internet for a variety of quilts, some handmade and
others machine made. Or maybe you prefer to make your own quilt
with one of the many quilt patterns or quilt kits available.
Whatever you choose to do, your quilt will be a fabulous and
charming addition to any home!
