A side note from The Patchwork Pilgrimage: "Further proof that ornamental patchwork is no newcomer to the church is provided by this fascinating pieced silk chasuble that is believed to have been made around 1540.During the Reformation, Roman Catholics were driven underground, and in England, persecution was given additional impetus by King Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon in 1533, when he broke with Rome and forced his subjects to swear allegiance to himself as the head of the church.Backings were often of linen, which was considered a utility fabric.Early 1800's quilts were usually large (120 X 120), and often whole cloth quilts, or quilts of whole panels, such as the Tree of Life. Sometimes you would find quilts made of plain blocks (such as a simple Ohio star or nine patch) alternating with a plain block.In the early 1800's, it was made by overdoing yellow with blue.
Although the technique of quilting existed throughout history (quilted items have been discovered in Egyptian tombs, for example, and French knights used quilted jackets under their armor), quilts as we think of them didn't start showing up on the American scene until just prior to 1800.
The applique quilts we now see with blue or tan leaves may have once been green.
Another fugitive color, purple, could be made with lichens and seashells.
Cotton was not readily available - the cotton gin was not invented until 1793 - and so the majority of fabrics used in clothing were linens, wools and silks.
What you might have seen prior to 1800 were quilted petticoats, worn for warmth.
