We all know this year has been an adjusting year for everyone as we acclimate to spending more time at home and less time out-and-about. The experts say how having an engaging workspace isn’t just for the sake of having beautiful things, but because human and environmental health are intrinsically linked. Using our increased time indoors to work on making a quilt can not only impact your mental state of being as you work on the project but also a comfort and coziness having a quilt to curl up with that you and your family can use.

It is now more important than ever to cultivate a sanctuary at home where we can spend time with our families and have free space to be ourselves. Living in comfort and feeling in tune with your surroundings can be encouraged with any sort of homemade quilt that matches your home’s styles and taste. With modern technology, the possibilities are endless for any gradient of color with no style being off limits. Using the bold vibrant colors or relaxing subdued colors from your homemade quilts will cultivate the living spaces for you and your loved ones.

With a quilts ‘ unique patterns, beautiful craftsmanship, vibrant colors and cozy textures, it’s no wonder quilts have been in households for hundreds of years. As early American settlers were struggling to survive, bits of fabric were precious and carefully utilized. Blankets were repaired with bits of fabric to lengthen their use and as time went on, this evolved into a practice of elaborate patch work quilts and extravagant needlework. This practice continued as quilts were passed onto generation after generation. Even now, hundreds of years later, quilts are still family heirloom pieces that are displayed or used to honor their family and heritage.
