Quilting is one of the loveliest possible ways to enhance your home decor and your wardrobe.
Quilting can be a frugal, thrifty craft if your intention is to reclaim fabrics from items you no longer need. Quilting was extremely popular during the depression-era 1930s. Instead of buying new fabrics, people reclaimed fabrics from old clothing and other textiles, and re-purposed them into quilted bedding and other items.
Currently, bed quilts and baby quilts are still some of the most popular quilting projects with contemporary crafters. Other popular quilting projects include quilted coats, vests, jackets, placemats, pillows, ornaments, Christmas stockings, handbags, tote bags, purses and diaper bags.
Nowadays, some people still practice frugality with their quilting, while others prefer to buy large quantities of the latest, most artistic fabrics available to use.
Either approach is valid.

If your thread collection has gotten out of hand, and you can’t find any of the threads you need when you need them, it’s time to get yourself a new thread organizer. I invite you to check out this review of teh Artbin Thread Storage Tray.
