No one knows who made the first quilt - that's how long ago it was that some industrious woman took leftover bits and pieces of material to make something warm and welcoming for her family. It was important to make the most of what she had.
We might not know who the first person was who made a quilt, but the tradition continues. There are thousands of men and women out there today making beautiful quilts - just because they want to.
