Handmade Quilts are Made with Love and Make Great Family Heirlooms!

Today's handmade quilts are more like a work of art than a bed cover. With all the wonderfully artistic quilt patterns available to quilters today, we are beginning to see some absolutely breathtaking quilts glowing with character and personality. If you are lucky enough, hopefully someone will give you a handmade quilt that you can enjoy and pass on to your children.

When I hear the word "quilt", I think of the colorful patchwork quilt draped across my Grandmother's bed. Her quilt consisted of a well thought out arrangement of bright colors and shapes that she had cut out from leftover fabric remnants. All the patchwork pieces were lovingly sewn together into a one-of-a-kind pattern creating a quilt that even today continues to add a cheerful traditional charm to my own bedroom. My Grandmother's handmade patchwork quilt is now a beautiful family heirloom that will be cherished by many generations to come.

If you don't have a beautiful patchwork quilt to pass on as a family heirloom, there are many quilt kits available to you. This way you can make your own quilt instead of buying one and it will have more sentimental value to your loved ones as it was handmade by you!

If a handmade patchwork quilt is absolutely out of the question for you, don't despair as there are plenty of quilts available at linen shops or through online retailers. You may even be able to find a beautiful handmade bed quilt at an auction, flea market, or local bazaar.

Whatever kind of quilt appeals to you is going to look stunning draped across your own bed. The unique look and textures of each quilt will add a traditional, charming look to your decor. You can find these colorful bed covers in a wide array of sizes too. There are baby quilts for your little one's crib, and child size quilts for your child's room.

Many of these beautiful home-made quilts are so stunning, that they are worthy to be hung on a feature wall. Hours and hours of time are put into the making of a typical quilt, so the next time you are given one as a gift, be sure to show your appreciation.

Check the internet for a variety of quilts, some handmade and others machine made. Or maybe you prefer to make your own quilt with one of the many quilt patterns or quilt kits available. Whatever you choose to do, your quilt will be a fabulous and charming addition to any home!
