              Civil War Soldier's Cot Quilts  are a re-creation of the common  4 1/2'  x  7' cot quilt made during the conflict between the north & south.  This size was designed to fit the soldier's sleeping cot and be rolled up to carry on their back from battle to battle.  Many soldiers were buried in the their quilts which resulted in very
          few original civil war quilts surviving.  
          The soldier's quilts where generally made with basic fabrics and very simple patterns.  Men's clothing, feed and fertilizer sacks, old blankets, uniforms, wool, suits, coats, twill flannel, sleeves, pocket-flaps and pant legs were all used to make quilts. 


          Tennessee Quiltworks is proud to recreate the look and feel of these special quilts. Which are made from Civil War Reproduction fabrics using traditional quilt block patterns of that era.  Cotton batting and tied.  Great for reenactors and civil war enthusiasts.
