The patchwork quilt bedspread: a short explanation
The patchwok quilt is a bedspread or bedcover made of two pieces of fabric with a soft filler (wadding) layer in between. The top of the patchwork quilt is where the creativity takes place as different pieces or patches of fabrics are combined together to form intricate and beautiful designs. The quilt backing is usually plain and more functional. The three layers are then quilted by using uniformly spaced fine stitching to make sure that the inner layer does not bunch up or crumple inside. The separate elements of a patchwork quilt are shown in the diagram below.
Although the basic skills of quilt making had been around for many centuries, the real impetus for the patchwork quilt began in America in the nineteenth century. This was when many of the traditional designs or 'blocks' were first created. One of the most famous is the 'Log Cabin', this features a central square surrounded by successive strips or 'logs'. Traditionally half of the logs are made from light fabrics and half the logs from dark fabrics. 'Flying Geese' are another traditional element and these consist of rows of quarter-square triangles flanked by half-square triangles. These elements can be seen in one of our quilts with another powerful symbol of pioneer days; the Bear's Paw.
