The word "quilt" comes from the Latin culcita meaning a stuffed sack, but it came into the English language from the French word cuilte. While there is no definitive date as to the origin of sewing techniques of piecing and quilting, the earliest known quilted garment is depicted on the carved ivory figure of a Pharaoh of the Egyptian First Dynasty, approximately created in 3400 BC.
