This is a day to day quilt made primarily to provide as much warmth as cheaply as possible. The maker has used scraps and offcuts of furnishing fabric and quilted it over a coarse blanket. This quilt is heavy!

In the next couple of posts I`m going to be featuring quilts from the more downmarket end of the quilting spectrum. Quilts that were not really intended to show off the makers needleworking skills, or her appreciation of colours or large stash of beautiful materials. These quilts are made for a purpose as a bedcovering, sometimes from whatever material was easily available, pieced together quickly and quilted minimally.
