People who do not particularly like to make quilts using material and a sewing machine have found that they can make beautiful quilts by crocheting. When placed on a bed the quilts stand out with their bright colors and complicated designs. It has been found that designs such as Dresden plate are lovely when done by crochet. Anyone who has done any of the basic crochet stitches can complete a crochet quilt. The result is a beautiful creation that unlike a regular handmade or purchased quilt does not need a filler. In addition it has the advantage that it can be turned and the same beautiful pattern is on the other side.

In addition all who view it will remark on the amount of work that had to be done and admire the person who was able to complete such a thrilling piece of art.

Why should you use Swarovski crystal rhinestones? Because they will last the lifetime of each quilt that you create.
