Quilts and Applique

Poster: Betty & David Eyer <Betty_and_David@compuserve.com>

My liege lady has recently taken a class in modern quilting.  Not only has
she very much enjoyed it, she has done quite a good job.  She asked me to
scout around for references of any sign of quilting in period.  I have
seen: quilted armor, monochromatic patterns done in quilting stitches on
late period (1450+) coverlets and table rugs, some applique in Ital. Renn
and Elizabethan times, and some Elizabethan embroidery that is done on a
stuffed and stitched surface in a very narrative style.  Am I warm?  Anyone
else have suggestions, experience?   amazon.com had approx 400 books on
quilting, but I saw not one on history prior to the American colonies.  So
these Scotch Irish landed on the shores of the Carolinas and just started
quilting, or what?  (that was humor)  Any assistance would be greatly
