Frugality Creating Beauty: How Scrap Quilts Developed

Scrap quilts are called a variety of different names, each a thread connected to quilters years ago who first used this pattern.

Called a “charm” quilt in the late 19th century, young women collected hundreds of different fabrics from their family and friends. Perhaps if they collected 999 different squares, their true love would bring them the thousandth–and their happily-ever-after dream, too. One quilting blogger speculates that collecting these fabrics may have given girls opportunities to ask their love interest for a contribution!

The scrap quilt has also been called a “beggar” quilt, referring to quilters asking each other for contributions to their projects. Trying to put together a bedspread without repeating every fabric, they also called the quilts “odd feller” quilts–every piece was an odd feller. Some families recall their mother repeating one square, however, so that a child sick in bed might be entertained looking for the matching patches.

Still another name scrap quilts went by is the “postage stamp” quilt, so called because quilters would use their tiniest scraps, sometimes no bigger than a postage stamp. Perhaps the original motivation was not wasting the smallest piece (historians recall the scarcity of the Great Depression in this), but it also became a challenge at some point. Quilters would collect thousands of pieces to compete with each other in making stitched masterpieces.

Did you know?

Not too many folks understand the scope of time and laborious workmanship engaged in making a quilt. Making a quilt is a process which make require 5 to 9 months to accomplish. Constructing a quilt is based on designing, scissoring, combining, quilting, and binding. When it's all said and done, the full amount of time to finish one quilt adds up to roughly 200 to 300 hours.

A quilt is not only a relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts choose top quality colorful materials and organize them into a distinct work of art. Pick from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically used to define crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Nonetheless, not all the stitching in a handcrafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely thimble, needle, as well as thread to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce an item distinctively for you.
