Some people initially try to just keep it in the living room, keeping it on a couch so it can be easily used. But individuals quickly realize that this is not going to be a good long term solution. No matter how much instruction and scolding is given to kids, the quilt will frequently end up on the floor. This will get it dirty. And if it is stepped on over time it will eventually get torn. The other option is to simply store it in a closet.
A traditional wooden quilt stand is the ideal furnishing for storing your quilts... at home. But if you plan to bring them everywhere, like in trade shows or in class, you might want to try and focus your attention on the portable types. These are usually available in steel construction, specifically aluminum, and could weigh around 14 to 17 pounds. A standard model is composed of a single horizontal beam that`s supported by vertical beams at each side. Most of the products in the market have fully adjustable horizontal beams, which could extend up to 10 feet to match any length of your trade show backdrops or quilts. The tripod feet can be made wider to increase their stability.
As with a handmade quilt, each block is put in a certain color pattern for the overall effect. There is nothing better than to create something that will last for years and be handed down to future generations. That is what happens with a beautiful crochet quilt that has been made with love and care. In addition, all who view it will remark on the amount of work that had to be done and admire the person who was able to complete such a thrilling piece of art.
With a preface written by Faith Ringgold and a foreword written by Cuesta Benberry, also quilters, writers and researchers within their own right, Spirits of the Cloth can be considered to be an academic work within the field of African American quilting. As a quilter, researcher, writer, historian, curator and lecturer regarded as an authority on the subject, Dr. Mazloomi`s scholarly work provides the uninitiated with a wealth of information on a topic virtually unknown before the latter quarter of the 20th century. The text highlights 150 quilts, referred to by the author as the "stories" of the artists who created them.
Of course, things being what they are, it doesn`t take harsh weather to cause us to feel the need for some consolation. No-o! These days, the perils of routine living, alone, can put us on edge. Then, throw in the state of the world, and the economy, and it`s enough to send anyone running for cover. Although we often seek out the people who normally support us during trying times, in many cases, they`re just as overwhelmed as we are.
