|Quilting in Mississippi was originally born out of necessity. Women created layered bed covers in order to keep their families warm during the winter months. It is one of the original recycled art forms. Quilters make use of a variety of scrap materials to create their quilt top patterns. While it is still a way for producing covers, quilting is increasingly being viewed as a unique art form, encouraging Mississippi quilters to expand their tradition and try out new ideas.
