Why do quilts matter?

What do quilts mean to you?

If you’re here, then like us, you probably love quilting. With that said, if you asked each of us what we love about quilting, I can guarantee that we would all have a slightly different answer, though still similar on many levels

But what about if you asked why quilts matter? Sure they are beautiful blankets that have kept us warm at night for centuries and centuries, but there is so much more to a quilt than the layers of fabric sandwich and sewn together that keep us warm when placed over our beds at night.

I love this series from Why Quilts Matter that breaks down the seemingly simple question “Why do quilts matter” in such a beautiful way. Check out the first video in the series below and then leave us a comment and let us know why quilts matter to you.
