Layered blankets, brought by the settlers, wore out quickly during the cold American winters and needed constant repair. The lack of tissue forced women to darn them using scraps or small pieces of old clothes. Over time people became so accustomed to patchwork bedcovers, that the variety of colors and textures started to be welcome and even became the reason of rivalry between mistresses. Each one tried to make her work the most beautiful and original.

In the mid-18th century, flower applique gradually replaced patchwork, and a hundred years later so-called “white work” became the most popular. Blankets in this particular technique were made of white cotton fabric, and the only ornamentation was the intricate stitch.
