A-Z Challenge = Q= Quilt. Wiki says the definition of a quilt is the stitching together of layers of padding and fabric. I made this quilt YEARS ago. It's not a traditional quilt in terms of style, or the type of stitches that were used; but it is layers of padding and fabric stitched together. Historically people used scraps, left over from other projects (shirts, dresses, skirts etc.) to make a quilt. Nothing was wasted, so quilts were a bit of this and a bit of that. Nowdays, they are much more pieces of art, made with special fabric in very intricate designs on expensive sewing machines. In the days of old, they were sew together by hand, women sat around a loom and quilted the top to the bottom, in a group effort.
This was made of scraps from old warn out flannel nightgowns, but not just any nightgowns. A group of friends used to go skiing together, and we women had "team" nightgowns, so these pieces parts are from those old nightgowns. One friend still skis, the rest of us have gotten old, lol. So this is a bit of a memory lane quilt. With the exception of blue and white snowflake background, the flannel is from various years, various ski trips. The other unusual thing is the x-stitched squares of related events from those ski years.
I've not received any quilts in donations, but would be thrilled to accept some. They would certainly be a wonderful addition to our cause. Sooooooo are there any quilters out there?
Can you help? Do you quilt?
