Traditional Quilts: Quilts through the Years

Record #:
Quilting through the centuries has experienced vast changes in purposes and patterns. Originally a padding for Crusaders’ armor, it gained popularity in the United States through communities such as Amish, community quilting bees, and fads such as the Log Cabin and crazy quilt. Quilting still has a presence in many communities through church quilting groups and community center classes, who can teach styles such as appliqued or pierced.
