Where to find the best Quilt Kits?

Hi There.....Do you like Quilts?

Did you know that today is Visit your Local Quilt Shop Day?

Me neither but I do like to browse through the calendar to see what kind of special day today could be 😊

It seems that Quilt shops aren't getting the attention they deserve. The purpose of this 'Visit your local Quilt shop day' is to give them the recognition they deserve. And to widen the scope Fabric shops of any kind can be part of it too.

I suppose most of you know what a quilt is but for those who don't.....Here is part of the description that I found on Wikipedia 

Quilts are textiles with multiple layers that are traditionally made up of three layers of fiber. Mostly they make a patchwork from smaller pieces of fabric, and the pattern and color of these pieces will be important to the design. They usually are quite light with little to no filling which makes them perfect as a blanket for spring or summer.

I have seen a lot of them on hobby fairs and I am always in admiration of the amount of work that goes into making such a quilt 😍

They have been introduced in Europe by the Crusaders in the 12th century as a quilted garment worn under their armor. One of the earliest existing works is the Tristan Quilt that was made around 1360 in Sicily.

They seem very popular in the United States where salvaging small scraps of fabric was a part of life for all households. It was often a communal activity, involving all the women and girls in a family or in a larger community.....But not only women would take part because there are also many historical examples of men participating in these quilt traditions.

Yes, girls don't be surprised.....But I know a few men who have creative hands πŸ˜‰

So how about I give you some inspiration to get quilting yourself and show you some of the materials you can find on Etsy πŸ˜‹

  10. Wat handig dat je kant-en-klare kits kunt kopen, dat scheelt alvast. Ben zelf alleen niet zo creatief met naald en draad (wordt nooit zoals ik in gedachten had), dus denk ik dat ik dan liever voor een complete deken zou gaan :)
