Quilts are bed covers also
known as comforters or duvets depending on what part of the world
you are from. Quilts are made by a process known as quilting.
Quilts are made when two layers of cloth along with a layer of
insulating batting are stitched together. Quilts can be handmade
or sewn with a sewing machine. Stitches are made in a geometric
grid that traps air in the material which is what makes quilts
so warm. This technique makes quilts warmer than a single layer
of material or even two separate layers. There are three steps
when making a quilt. Piecing is the first step and it involves
the sewing of the quilt top. The second step is called layering;
this is where the quilter layers the quilts backing, batting,
and top into place. The third and final step is binding. Binding
is when the quilts edges get trimmed with fabric.
