Are quilts more a Northern thing? I grew up in the tropics and I can not remember every seeing a quilt in person. The only time I saw them was when we went on vaction to the Carolinas or on TV.
I was just doing some reading on another site when someone asked about summer quilts. Which made me think that most quilts were made to keep warm in the winter. Since our winters were rather warm I can see why we never used them. Now I can see wheres up North it would be cold enough long enough to be a important item to have. Also concidering how much colder it was back in those days.
So am I correct to assume that quilts were just a Northern thing? Lets use the Carolinas as the deviding line anything North of them I consider Northern.
