Quilts are a part of our heritage, lovingly handcrafted to proudly tell a story and last, at least, a lifetime!
Quilting traditions are particularly prominent in the United States and Canada, where the necessity of creating warm bedding met the paucity of local fabrics in the early days of the colonies. Imported fabric was very expensive, and local “homespun” fabric was labor-intensive to create and tended to wear out sooner than commercial fabric. It was essential for most families to use and preserve textiles efficiently. Saving or salvaging small scraps of fabric was a part of life for all households.
Sanity Hill customs quilts are created by hand from quality materials using techniques learned over a rural quilting frame. Our quilts are meant to be proudly shown off to visitors and used to keep your loved ones warm and snug for years or generations to come.
Below are a selection of our current custom quilts:
