Commercial Quilt

Date made: 1920-1939

Description: A reversible diamond patterned cotton patchwork quilt. The quilt is mustard yellow with a central floral diamond set in a yellow square with a wide floral border on one side, and a yellow diamond set in a floral square surrounded by a wide yellow border on the other.

The quilt is machine-quilted in a tight zig-zag or wave pattern in pale yellow cotton thread. It has two rows of straight stitching around the edges as binding and is filled with wadding. The quilt has a green and yellow embroidered trade mark on the back bearing the words 'The Comfy' Regd. Washable Hygienic'.

This quilt is from the home of Miss Mona Woodworth of Port St Mary. It is thought to have been made commercially in Ulster (possibly Belfast) in the 1920s-30s.
