In such instances, our only recourse may be to grab our beloved, dependable quilts, and wrap ourselves in their soft, soothing warmth. Truly, it`s no wonder that quilts are referred to as comforters, or, even more to the point, security blankets. Actually, they have been calming furrowed brows for centuries, during a long, colorful history that is steeped in tradition. Because they have, customarily, been given as gifts, and made from pieces of worn-out clothing, linens, and other materials of significance to the recipient, the sentimental value of quilts increases many times over.
These often included quilts that had been stitched by friends of the women of the departing families, as keepsakes of people and places that they weren`t likely to see, ever again. Along the trails, quilts were used for many things, besides bedding. While friendship and heirloom quilts were frequently kept in trunks, or used for wrapping fine china, and other delicate items, everyday quilts were folded, and used as cushions on the rigid wagon seats. During blinding dust storms, people would hang their quilts across openings, and stuff them into cracks, to keep debris and dirt out of the wagons.
Observe a playground of 3 year olds playing for a few minutes. They are the busiest little independent group of individuals. Each can make you smile, cause you sleepless nights, and give you the most love and joy you have ever experienced in your life. As a quilter, designing a children`s quilt is much like these little ones on the playground. Each of the unique children`s quilts stand alone in a sea of other unique handmade baby quilts, yet all belong to the collection entitled, "Children`s Quilts." The quilter smiles and sews, thinking of the child, who will cuddle under the quilt each night. Yet, those late nights spent making sure the children`s quilt meets with the high expectation of its maker, if not, long hours will be spent until the problem is resolved. But as the quilter adds the last stitches to the finished project, she knows that unique handmade quilt, will become another keepsake to her growing collection of the children`s quilts.
Well, it is quite hard to attract a crowd if you`ll just place your quilts on the floor - visitors wouldn`t be able to see your quilt collection from a distance. And it wouldn`t really help if you`ll just tape them on the wall - it might come off as very unprofessional and messy. That`s why portable quilt racks are highly recommended to use in trade show exhibits because they keep everything in orderly fashion and easy for both the exhibitor and potential customers.
Many people want a quilt rack for their home. This is often because they have a quilt gathering dust in the closet. They want to display them but know that quilts cannot withstand the wear and tear that takes place in a typical household. A quilt rack is an excellent way to show off a quilt in a safe way. If you are thinking about purchasing one, you should seriously consider buying it online. Using a web retailer offers much more selection that would not be available in a normal store.
