In choosing the correct yarn, it is important that the correct kind be chosen. No one wants to do the work required to crochet a quilt and then have it not last very long because of a poor yarn choice. Worsted weight yarn seems to be the most popular type. It is important that instructions be kept regarding what needs to be done when it is necessary to clean the quilt so it is not ruined by incorrect cleaning. Many of the quilts are simply crotched blocks that are then put together with a tapestry needle. This is simple when something like a Nine Patch Quilt is made.
Many elderly people remember being taught, as children how to crochet, a practice handed down through the family for years. The exact beginning of this special craft has been argued for years with many countries claiming this honor. In our own country, the first English settlers did it in order to provide various garments for the family. Crochet quilts were often made for babies. Originally used to create such things as lace and other adornments it was soon found practical for clothing and bed coverings. For many years afghans were a favorite and many won ribbons at county fairs. They were especially appreciated for their practical use when someone was ill.
In olden days, pioneer families that braved the hostile, westward trails, in hopes of finding new land, and new lives, had to stock up on supplies, as they prepared for their journeys. They needed provisions that would not only assist with their safe passage, but would help them to survive, when they reached their destinations. Along with several months` worth of food, ammunition, and clothing, it was recommended that every family pack enough bedding to last for a few years, with two or three quilts or blankets per person.

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.
