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 Americana Garden Patchwork Quilt Set is a classic patchwork quilt with handcrafted appeal that adds farmhouse charm to any bedroom. Our Rosemary Quilt Set offers a colorful display of flowers and quilt squares, and is equally as beautiful, 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. Ticking fabrics can be traced back to the first mattresses, which we know were filled with either straw or feathers. These fabrics were tightly woven to prevent the straw or any quills from poking through. While this functionality isn't required for our modern mattresses and furniture, our made in Maine Freeport Ticking Stripe Blanket will offer the same comfort and durability as those from the past. 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.
