Q'UILTED BLANKET Application filed January 30, 1929'. Serial No. 336,085.
' This invention relates generally to bed comfortables and has more particular reference to a novel quilted blanket.
The invention has for an object the provision of a quilted blanket which is of simple durable construction, desirable in use, and which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.
The invention proposes the use of a blanket member, a second blanket member positioned in the top thereof, and filler material of down, wool, cotton or the like arranged between the said blanket members. These elements are secured together. by stitches. The upper blanket may be substituted by silk material or other desirable material.
Quilted blankets of this kind will eliminate the necessity of having a blanket under the present quilts. It is known that quilts do not closely form to the body and therefore, at the present time blankets are used under the quilts.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages there of, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more par ticularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a plan View of a quilted blanket constructed according to this invention.
Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 but dis closing a modified form of the device- Fig. 1 is a fragmentary plan View of a quilted blanket constructed according to modified form.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a similar View to Fig. 1 showing a modified form of my invention.
Fig. 7 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 77 of Fig. 6.
The reference numeral 10 indicates generally a blanket and 11 an upper blanket positioned upon the blanket 10 and secured thereto by stitches 14. Filler material 12 of down, wool, cotton orthe like is arranged between the blankets and held in place by the said stitches 14. The head and foot portions of the quilted blanket should be symmetrically arranged to'permit interchanging '55 during use. Stitches 15 are arrangedalong the edges of the bed blankets.
In the modified form of the device illustrated in Fig. 3 a blanket 10 has been shown with filler material 12 arranged thereon and silk material 13 disposed above the filler material and all parts being secured together by stitches 14. i i
In the modified form of the device illustrated in Figs. 4. and 5, upper and lower blankets 16 and 17 respectively, are secured together'along their edges as indicated by numeral 18. At the longitudinal centers these blankets are pleated or gathered indi cated bynumeral 19. Elastic inner strips 20 are arranged over the pleated portions on the inner sides of the blankets and are secured by stitches 21 so as to normally hold the pleats in form. Very soft filler material 22 is arranged between the blankets in the vicinity of the pleated portions while harder filler material 23 is arranged in other portions of the quilted blanket so that the hardness of the quilted blanket is uniform thruout its entire surface. If the same hardness of filler 30 I were used thruout the entire interior of the quilted blanket, the portions formed with the pleats and elastics would be harder than the other portions and the use of the softer filler overcomes this deficiency.
In use the quilted blanket is very comfortable and desirable. The form shown in Figs. 4 and 5 permits stretching due to the clastic strips QO-giving and allowing the pleated portions to unfold. This is of advantage in m the event that one portion of the blanket is held down while the other portion is being pulled, such stretching prevents tearing.
In the modified form shown in Figs. 6 and 7, an ornamental edging 23 and other orna- Q5 mental figures 24 made of silk or any other suitable material are secured on top of the upper blanket by stitches 14.
While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to 119 be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the in- 5 vention as defined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is 1. In a quilted blanket, an upper and a lower blanket each formed with a longitudinal pleat, elastic strips attached at their end on opposite sides of the folds forming said pleats for holding the pleats closed and the blankets in smaller operative sizes, very soft filler material disposed between the blankets in the vicinity of the pleats, and harder filler material disposed between the blankets at all other portions for substantially corresponding with the combined hardness of the pleated portions and soft filler material.
2. In a quilted blanket, an upper and a lower blanket each formed with a longitudinal pleat, means for resiliently holdin the pleats closed, and the blankets in smaller operative sizes, very soft filler material disposed between the blankets in the vicinity of the pleats, and harder filler material disposed. between the blankets at all other portions, for
substantially corresponding with the combined hardness of the pleated portions and soft filler material.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.
