1) It's a wonderful hobby that allows you to create something unique and useful.
Spending time doing something you love can be extremely rewarding. What's even more rewarding is knowing that your hobby also serves useful in a practical way. With quilting, you get the best of both worlds.
2) Track history, commemorate important events and preserve your legacy for generations to come.
What better way to show someone you care than by creating something with your own two hands to commemorate an important event. Whether it's the birth of a new life into the world, or the joining of two people who love each other in marriage, quilting can help show them how much you really care.
