SEPARATE REMOVABLE QUILT-COVERING,
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 2, i918.
Application filed September 5, 1917. Serial No. 189,746.
- To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SARAH S'roDnARD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oakland, in the countyof Alameda and State of- California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Separate Removable Quilt- Coverings, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a separate removable quilt covering. a
One of the objects of the present invention is to provide a separate covering for quilts,
which may be quickly applied or removed when ei her the quilt or covering requires laundrying, this being particularly desirable as it not only saves the quilt from being soiled and from being worn by too much laundrying, but it also retains it in a more sanitary condition than is otherwise possible.
Another: object of the invention is to provide a simple means for securing the covering to the quilt and also to prov1de a covering which permits a rolled edge formation on the quilt, as will hereinafter be described. Further ob ects will hereinafter appear.
The invention consists of the parts and the construction and combination of partsas hereinafter more fully described and claimed, in which 1 Figure 1 is a perspective view of the quilt partly broken away.
Fig. 2 is across section of same.
Referring to the drawings in detail, A indicates a standard form of quilt, provided with a permanent cover and filled with cotton padding or other suitable material. Separate from the quilt proper but adapted to be secured thereto is an upper cover section 2 and a lower cover section 3. Said lower cover is considerably. larger than the upper cover and the quilt to permit the outer edges to be folded over the top cover.
Both covers are provided with buttonholes arranged at intervals along the edges and crosswise oi the quilt, and buttons are attaneously giving an upholstered or heavy padded effect, as the buttons thus secured compress the padding.
In actual practice when applying the outer removable cover, it may be-accomplished by first spreading out the quilt on a bed or other flat surface. The top covering may then be spread over the quilt and buttoned thereto. The quilt with the top covering may then be turned over and the bottom cover applied. The quilt is then reversed and the outer edges are rolled over, as shown at 4, and are secured in said rolled position by folding the outer edges of the bottom cover over the roll and buttoning it to the outer rows of buttons. This secures the roll in place and gives an ornamental finish to an ordinary rially afi'ecting the appearance of the quilt when completed.
The use of two separate removable cover sections is important from several points of view. First of all it can readily be seen that'it prevents the quilt proper from being soiled, thereby eliminating t e necessity of having it laundried as often as is usually the case. Wear and tear of the quilt proper is eliminated and it is retained in a more sanitary condition. The ornamental appearance of the quilt as a'whole is also materially improved as practically any color and pattern of covering may be employed. For instance, the top cover may have one color pattern while the bottom cover may be of a difierent color. The upturned edges which overlap the top cover will in this manner term a border for the top and thereby materially increase the artistic appearance of the quilt. The materials and finish of the quilt and the covers ap lied may be such as the enprience and udgment of the manufacturer may dictate and the manner'of attaching the covers to the quilt may also be varied. ile buttons are here shown, it is obvious that anfi other suitable means may be employed. aving thus described my invention, what Lclaim and desire to secure by Letters Patent -is- 1. The combination with a quilt having a permanent cover, of a separate removable covering therefor, consisting of an upper and a lower section, and means for securing each section to the quilt independently of the other.
2. The combination with a quilt having a permanent cover, of a separate removable covering therefor consisting of an upper and a lower section, said lower section being larger than the quilt and the upper cover section to permit the edges of the quilt to be rolled and the sides and ends of the lower section to be folded over said roll, and means for securing both cover sections to the quilt.
3. The combination with a quilt havin a permanent cover, of aseparate, remova is covering therefor, said removable covering consisting of an upper and a lower section, and means for securing each section to the quilt.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
