Patchwork, Quilts and Coverlets from the 19th Century.
Coverlets are woven on a loom – sometimes the woman of the house would spin and dye the yarn and an itinerant weaver would do the weaving. Quilting is actually a technique for stitching two pieces of cloth or leather together, which may include a middle layer of padding. Patches from worn out clothing or new cloth could be sewn together in decorative patterns as the top layer of a quilt. Quilts and coverlets were both useful and a daily reminder of the people who contributed to their creation.
