Patchwork made from samples of men's suiting fabrics. The sample pieces on the edges may have come from a sample book which was bound together loosely rather than in a book form. The samples in the middle are probably from a bound sample book. The cotton backing may either indicate that the coverlet was finished in more recent times.

This small quilt is machine stitched and made from suiting samples which have come from two styles of sample books. The colours are predominantly in blues and blue-grey. The quilt has been backed with a paisley printed cotton fabric.
