Scraps to Silks

Regular price $5.00

Originally intended as utilitarian  objects, pieced together from whatever scraps of cloth that were available, by the turn of the twentieth century many quilts had become largely decorative, incorporating luxurious fabrics like velvet and silks and no longer simply serving as bed coverings.
