Before the popularity of platform beds, the box spring bed dominated the bedroom scene. Box springs have coils to support the mattress. The coils provide extra resiliency and serves as a shock absorber as the body weights presses on. Platform bed on the other hand supports the mattress with a hard raised wooden platform minus the spring or coil.

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.

Unless you can find a store that specializes in them, the selection in the typical store will usually be sparse. If you typically shop at a large discounter like Walmart, there will probably only be a few cheaply-made models available. This is fine if you are primarily looking to save money. But many people don`t like to scrimp on tacky furniture.

Often they are one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Almost always they are hand made, either by the owner or from a good friend. They have intricate designs and take dozens if not hundreds of hours to create. However, since they are stitched together they usually don`t hold up to wear-and-tear like mass-manufactured blankets from a factory. This poses a dilemma for many owners.

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.

This permits the quilter to stand back and scrutinize the design before sewing the quilt. Quilters often dangle batting or plain white flannel on their design walls, because quilt blocks tend to stick to it effortlessly without pinning. A design wall is one of the tools that are of immense advantage to any quilt-maker.

Fortunately, the definition of African American quilting became broader in the 1980s, ironically enough because of the pioneering work of such women as Dr. Mazloomi herself, along with a number of her contemporaries. The first African American quilting guild was formed as a result of an advertisement placed by Mazloomi in a magazine; nine women responded. Today, the Women of Color Quilter`s Network has approximately 1700 members, some of whom are accomplished artists, speakers, and authors themselves. Similar guilds have since been formed.
