"Why would anyone want to go through the expense and time necessary to make a quilt in this day of ready-made comforters and bedspreads? Why indeed?
A quilt is not now nor has it ever been exclusively a practical cover for keeping a body warm. Even when great-great-great-grandmother made a quilt, it was not just for physical warmth. It was a creative outlet in an otherwise bleak existence -- a way of expressing oneself, of giving life, of venting frustrations or despair. Quilts were for "kivvers," quilts were made for weddings and births, quilts were made for mourning."
