Nowadays the handmade quilts for sale that you get in the market are not simply a bed cover but a work of art. Yes, stitching is definitely a work of art and takes a lot of skill, artistry and patience. The colourful patch work, the fine kantha stitch, cross-stitch or Kashmiri stitch done by our mothers and grandmothers on handmade quilts were no less than sheer fine art. The way the discarded pieces of cloth were cut and sewn together to have a magnificent patchwork quilt ready is really amazing. What a beautiful idea to recycle things and create useful stuff out of them, isn’t it? Our earlier generations were truly more advanced than us in these fields. In today’s market we have thankfully began to care and value such artworks and thus they are sold as home décor to spread the same amount of love and warmth in our homes. Your bed cover or quilt should also reflect your aesthetic sense and taste for beauty.
