Quilt. A coverlet or counterpane. The Honeycomb quilt, as its name implies, is a cloth with the figures on its surface formed by raised ridges, both warp and weft way. It is generally woven of bleached knitting-cotton, two or three double. Grecian quilts are also woven of bleached knitting-cotton, and yet the coarse threads give a smooth, glossy surface in consequence of the weave, being on the damask principle. Alhambra quilts are woven of vari-colored cotton yarns, usually in flower designs. [See Marseilles, Counterpane, Coverlet]
