Quilts for Cars

Oh, yes!  Quilters love their craft and they really love to let everyone know just how much they love it!  Quilts were originally intended as bed coverings to keep you warm.  Most of them were made with scraps that were from old clothing or traded with other quilters.  Fast forward 100+ years and we make "lap" quilts to snuggle under while watching TV or reading, wall quilts (hangings) to help insulate our homes, art quilts, and more.  There are quilt blocks painted on barns and even tours to see this wonderful artwork.  What else are quilters doing with orphan blocks?  Click on the link below to see just how creative we quilters are!!
