Have you heard the stories about quilts guiding escaping slaves on the underground railroad? Or how scrap quilts came about because of quilters having to make do?
You may be as surprised as we were to discover that those stories simply aren’t true.
In the following video, Mary Fons from Quilty walks us through five popular quilt myths and explains why they’re incorrect. She’s very knowledgeable and provides an interesting presentation.
While we’d rather believe some of the stories than not, it’s nice to have more accurate information. What do you think?
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
