Historical Patterns

Here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we celebrate early American heritage by offering historically inspired quilts and throws. For warmth, comfort and versatile designs, nothing compares to the options we have.

Early American Inspiration

Quilting in colonial times was a way to pass down family and heritage in a practical way. Time-consuming to hand stitch, quilts were cherished gifts reserved for newlyweds and newborns. Patterns varied, representing different elements of nature, love and family.

The Anniversary Quilt Collection is a long time customer favorite because of its Colonial appeal. Rustic Sawyer Country Star Quilt Collection enhances the farmhouse appeal of a bedroom's style, bringing forth sensations of comfort and a welcoming air.

Our Apothecary Quilt Collection features quilted stitching resembling patterns found on antique tin ceilings and is available in a number of colors to fit your style.

Timeless Style

Non-quilted options can have just as much historical appeal as their quilted counterparts. With our made in Maine Freeport Ticking Stripe Blanket, the accent blanket for your couch or favorite chair no longer needs to be boring. Spruce up your living room with classic colors such as country blue, traditional cream or tan, and think about texture, tassels and fringe for enhancing the decorative appeal of each piece.

The Iron Quilt Stand will keep your throws and heirloom quilts within easy reach in a bedroom and looking nice when placed on display. It is also a good idea to have extra bedding layers made available to your guests just in case they become chilly at night.
