- Jan 4, 2008Silk was not used for quilt batting in period, and as far as I know, silk
batts are modern (as in, within the last ten years or so). Japanese sashiko
work (which is post-period) is stuffed exclusively with cotton, as are Turkish
yorgan (heavily stuffed quilts), Turkish quilted coats, and all the surviving
European bedquilts from the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries.
