Yes friends I love me a warm coverlet.
I have quite a few in my collection.
Now American coverlets were
made on looms from 1771-1889.
The earlier ones were more primitive
in style and were created by both
men and women.
There are basically two types
of coverlet types ~
fancy and geometric.
Colors come in a range
of blues, reds, whites and golds.
By the 1800's weavers often added
the year a coverlet was made.
Some even added the name of the person
the coverlet was created for.
Older coverlets have a center seam
because the looms were smaller in size.
Sams goes for antique rugs.
Coverlets were the last to go on a bed.
Unlike quilts these were intended
to be used on both sides,
therefore each had a reverse pattern.
Essentially you would get
two for the price of one.
This is the close up of my coverlet on the bed.
The picture before this one...
I realized that since I moved the bed
here in the corner for Winter,
gives me some wall space.
Hmmm...me thinking I need to hook
a new rug here.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.
Coverlet Blessings To All!
