Francis Brayley, Quilt, 1864-77. Made in India. V&A

Military quilts represent a unique chapter in the history of the craft. They are made from wool serge or worsted twill, used in the production of military uniforms. Because of the thickness of the cloth, piercing and sewing the quilts was extremely difficult and it is unlikely that any military quilts were made by women.
