Thought some of you might like to see where " quilting machines" started.

I loved reading about this and especially enjoyed the pictures.  When I was in college we took a "field trip" to a factory where bedding was being stitched.  (They did not call it quilting).  There were 3-4 machines on each frame.  The machine heads did not move.  They were locked down tight.  The FRAME moved and thus each machine stitched the same pattern.  You can imagine that it took a large room since the frame was so very large.  I thought it was fascinating!  Oh, it was also very noisy.

Great site and link!  Thank you for sharing it.  It's bookmarkable.


 I also really liked reading about the 'humility blocks.'
