Quilting has a history that spans the world. A culturally diverse art form, it has been approached in a variety of ways from different peoples across the globe. For those of us that appreciate and respect quilting for its history, multiplicity and beauty, we owe it to ourselves, and others in the quilting community, to expand our horizons and learn everything we can about this most special craft. It’s up to us to teach one another about quilting so that we may enjoy it to its fullest potential!
