Rebecca’s Reel Quilters guild members share the joys of quilt making. If you are already an experienced quilter then why not share your love with the next generation.

In 1991, the National Quilting Association decided to create a special day to celebrate and inspire lovers of quilting and to encourage others to take up this charming and addictive craft. Quilting Day was born, and has been celebrated ever since by quilt and patchwork lovers every spring.

Quilting is basically a form of sewing where small pieces of fabric are stitched together. It has been practiced for hundreds of years and is particularly associated with the pioneering culture of North America; many famous quilting block patterns, such as ‘Log Cabin’, ‘Wild Geese’ and ‘Tree of Life’ were created in this period.
