Although often considered an American Folk Art tradition, brought to the early United States by the early English and Dutch settlers, quilting's origins can be traced much further back.

Quilts have been made worldwide for centuries in one form or another, with many countries and cultures laying claim to the first.

The earliest examples include a Mongolian quilted floor covering from around the 1st century AD. It looked like a carpet in quilted form.

There is also a quilted panel, part of a set of three made in Sicily in the late 1300s. It resides in the Victoria & Albert Museum collection in London. 

There were heavily stitched and appliqued quilts made for churches and the rich in Sweden in the fifteenth century. They were created from silk, wool, and felt.

The quilting style we know today is believed to have originated in Europe during the Crusades. Historians found that the Turks first began wearing quilted fabric under their armor to keep warm from the harsh climate. The design proved so good that it rapidly evolved into bed coverings and other forms of clothing. 

India has a rich history of quilted bedcoverings, from Kantha in the east to Ralli in the West. Quilted clothing is also popular in many parts of the world, including the Middle East and China. And patchwork, integral to our understanding of quilts, has long been made in places like Central Asia and the Korean peninsula.

The American quilt story is part of a much larger World of Quilts.
