Quilt making was common in the late 17th century and early years of the 18th century. Women on both sides were very active in raising money for the war effort and making quilts and other bed coverings for soldiers. Colonial quilts were not made of left over scraps or worn clothing as a humble bedcovering during this period. Instead, they were decorative items that displayed the fine needlework of the maker such as the Baltimore album quilts. In the North, quilts were still made for fairs but now these fairs earned money to support needs that came about because of the war. In the South, "gunboat" quilts were made to pay for much-needed gunboats.
