  • Quilty pleasures: Six amazing quilts to inspire you to Get Creative (BBC Arts)

    April 13, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    quilty-plesuresRecently BBC Arts featured a little bit of history of quilting with creative examples from kids and adults to inspire others to create quilts. Come check out the variety of quilting fabrics we have in stock at Britex Fabrics, or check us out online.

    "For early American settlers, quilt-making inspired generations of women to work together stitching and telling stories as they pieced together a new life amidst the harsh conditions of the New World.

    It’s more than likely quilting and patchwork came to North America courtesy of the first British families who emigrated there. Now, the craft is experiencing a creative rebirth with over 6,500 members of the Quilters’ Guild, plus many other artists and creative people making wonderful quilts blending the traditional and the contemporary."
