"Here is a beautiful quilt..." Abilene Off The Beaten Path Tip by brdwtchr

Abilene Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 16 photos


Here is a beautiful quilt created by sewing thousands of tiny squares of cloth together. It depicts the state flower of Kansas, the sunflower. In pioneer days quilting was a way to use up scraps of cloth cut from clothes that had been worn out. It was a way to use some thing again. It took a lot of labor to make a quilt and it was often a project several women would meet and work on together.
