Handmade Quilts and The Quilting Industry

Quilting can be known as either a hobby or business, with many different options in quilts available. Handmade quilts are a specialty market, with the industry reaching the size of about $3.7 billion at this point. Some quilts are very large, while others are quite specific to the requests of a certain customer. Therefore, quilting is a very skilled task overall.

History of Quilting

Dating back to about 3400 B.C., there is much to see in the centuries of history around handmade quilts. As far back as ancient Egypt and China, there were very special quilts made of three layers of fabric sewn together. Several other types of specialty quilts have come along throughout the centuries, with some of them serving as personal gifts and others as national monuments. The different titles of some of these handmade quilts include:

  • Custom memory quilts
  • Custom quilts
