Quilting is a form of needlework in which
two layers of fabric over an interlining are sewn together, usually
in a pattern of back or running (quilting) stitches. This method of
securing warmth in covering and clothing has been practiced in N Asia
and Europe for centuries. Quilting has been a feature of embroidery in
the form of raised work.
The art of quilting is still practiced
by Southern mountaineers and in other rural districts and has been
revived generally as ornamental needlework. Machine-quilted materials
are used for wearing apparel and in interior decoration, particularly
for bed and couch covers. Quilting has also become an art form, as
exemplified in the work of some of our featured artists.
