A patchwork bedcover (incomplete), machine pieced of rectangles of wool sample pieces each approximately 10 cm x 14 cm, arranged in 14 rows of 19 blocks each. The fabrics are blocks from a tailor's sample book of wool suitings in shades of brown and grey. On the reverse, some of the sample fabrics still have the reference labels on, with numerals, letters and the text 'all worsted' printed on. The bedcover is incomplete, with no backing or edging.
