Biscuit quilts were so named because they reminded women of something familiar; warm biscuits fresh from the oven. In much the same way, lightly puffed quilts call to mind a sense of well-being & warmth. Like baking biscuits, stitching biscuit quilts is an old-fashioned skill that is easy to master. Both kind of biscuits are made from a few simple ingredients; both are easy enough to teach children; both are appreciated by the whole family.
