Quilts Can Save Your Life

Unless you are an extreme hiker, hypothermia and frostbite aren’t typical worries. But a dark December night, a stretch of icy road and unexpected engine problems – any driver can face an emergency like this. And it’s just this sort of situation where a quilt can save your life.

It doesn’t have to be a priceless heirloom or even a custom quilt, but a blanket in the trunk can keep you warm and comfortable while you wait for the tow-truck to arrive. That blanket spread on the ground can prevent sore knees when changing a tire, too. And whether your area faces the possibility of wildfires, tornados, earthquakes, hurricanes or floods, Ready America, Homeland Security’s national preparedness website, recommends that your emergency kit include a warm blanket for each member of your family.

Avoid burns, too, using custom quilted hot pads from Whimzie Quiltz – special insulated batting protects your hands when taking baked lasagna or homemade cookies out of the oven – and they can be made to match any kitchen!
