Black Slate

Patchwork Quilting goes back many years. Examples of quilting have been found in tombs of pharaohs dating back to 3400BC. Joseph's coat of many colors was probably quilt. Even a quilting frame was made by heavy fabrics together. Quilt occurred in domestic inventories of the 17th century. Patchwork quilting has even evolved into an art form known as art quilts. The Amish quilting traditions have developed other immigrants in the U.S., in his own style.

Migrants from Europe had its tradition of making quilts with them to America. Ideas and designs of fabrics and even exchanged across the Atlantic.

Crazy quilts are made randomly sewing fabric loose. In colonial times all the curtains had to be sent from Europe at great expense so that nothing could be wasted.

A quilt was never considered as finished until it had been padded. Quilting combination of the three layers of the blanket – with the backing, wadding and rebuilt the top, so that the garments of wool or cotton wadding remain in place.

A group of special mention is the Amish, a religious group who emigrated to America in the 1800s. Quilting was a skill acquired from the U.S., but rather a skill they learned from the former neighbors of English in their new land. In Amish societies, a simple life is a fundamental belief and remains today to avoid mechanization. While they use a pedal-operated sewing machines to rebuild their quilts together the padding is always done by hand.

The only restriction is what is available to the Quilter own sense of color and the Quilter. Typically an Amish quilt will have two or three colors dominant accent color, for example, slate purple, blue, black and deep. The target is not used often because it is difficult to keep clean.
