The History of Quilts

Share this post

When we last talked about quilts on The Fold, Rebecca shared her personal history with quilts and how they made her feel connected to both her heritage and her love of textiles. This made us think about the history of quilts and quilting as a whole. We did some digging we found out even more about quilting’s rich history that continues today, with modern-day quilters and a revived interest in quilts as art in museums. Don’t miss our new baby quilts (sewn here in Brooklyn) that are up in the shop this week.

Behind every design is a story drawn from collections of memories.
