It was not until the 1970s that this unique category of quilts came to be recognized and regarded as "official" by the larger quilting community. However these so-called experts while taking a step in the right direction inadvertently caused more harm initially. They stated that African American quilts in order to be categorized as such had to fall within certain narrowly defined parameters and made by black women who resided in a particular geographical region of the United States. This then meant that the vast majority of African American quilters were still left virtually unrecognized and unwelcomed into the quilting community as their work fell neither in the category of traditional quilting or within the newly defined category of African American quilting.
To a typical person a quilt might seem like a normal piece of bedding. But for many quilt owners this could not be further from the truth. Often they are one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Almost always they are hand made either by the owner or from a good friend. They have intricate designs and take dozens if not hundreds of hours to create. However since they are stitched together they usually don`t hold up to wear-and-tear like mass-manufactured blankets from a factory. This poses a dilemma for many owners.
This will probably be the best option if you are looking to preserve your quilt. But this simply means you will not be able to enjoy it all. What`s the point of having a quilt if it`s going to be stashed away where it cannot be seen or used? This is why many quilt owners eventually by a rack to store it on. With an official piece of furniture to place it own family members will be more respectful. And just as important you will be able to display it in whatever room you please.
