Wool Suit Quilt

If you’re doing some clean-out of your closets and have some old wool suits you’re looking to get rid of, here’s a great re-use, recycle idea for you.¬† This little patchwork quilt would be an easy project — even for a beginner quilter like myself.¬† And I’m sure it would be toasty and warm on a cold winter’s day.

    This is EXACTLY the quilt I want to make with all the sport coats I bought a thrift stores. When I was a kid, we always had a couple of these laying around that one of my aunt’s had made. Is it backed with flannel? Batting?

    I found your site on the internet and I hope you can answer some questions for us.

    I have inherited a memorial quilt from a family member and I would like to see if I would be able to sell it to someone who has a collection. It has no sentimental value at all to any of the family and we can not trace the origin other than it came into our family in Las Vegas Nevada.

    It is made up of about 100 or more pieces of wool from suit coats and trousers. It is in fairly good condition and seems to be from the 1940’s or 50’s as far as we can tell. It measures about 54″ x 71″ and is constructed of darker men’s wear fabrics.

    Can you tell me if there is a market for this sort of items and if so where?

    Sincerely –

    James McCoy
