Quilt

A quilt is a bedcover or coverlet normally made from two layers of cloth with a layer of raw or woven wadding in between. The top layer of a quilt (from the Old French coilte, Latin culcita, 'mattress' or 'cushion') may be made of a single length of material, or two or more pieces sewn together, often using a patchwork technique. The bottom layer usually consists of a plain length of cloth.
