Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 23, 1911.

Application led April 22, 1910. Serial No. 556,989.

To all whom 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, PERoIvAL D. STAN- NARD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Norwalk, in the county of Fairfield, State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Footboard-Quilts; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to foot-board quilts and is particularly adapted for use in connection with'beds.

The object of the invention resides in the construction` of a footboard quilt so constructed that same may be easily attached and detached to the foot-board of a bed, and when attached thereto is adapted to have its lower portion disposed beneath the mattress of the bed so as to efiiciently exclude the admission of cold air beneath the covers by way of the foot-board to the discomfort of the occupant.

With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the details of construction and in the arrangement and combination of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing the invention in detail reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters of refer-V ence denote corresponding parts in the several views; and in which,

Figure 1 is a detail perspective -view showing the manner in which the invention is applied to a bed having an open foot-board; and, Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the invention detached.

Referring to the drawings, 10 indicates the foot-board of the bed, 11 the springs and 12 the mattress. The quilt is shown as comprising an upper portion 13 and a lower portion 14 between which is formed a longitudinal seam 15 whereby said lower portion 14 may be easily bent at an angle to the upper portion 13. The lower portion 14 is again provided with a longitudinal seam 16 and that portion thereof contained between the seam 16 and the lower end of the quilt is reduced in thickness with respect to the remainder of the quilt. Secured at spaced intervals along the upper edge of the portion 13 are attaching strands 17 which are adapted to be secured around the cross bar 18 of the foot-board 10 so as to maintain the upper portion 13 disposed against and closing the openings through the foot-board 10; while the lower portion 14 of the quilt is disposed at an angle to the upper portion 13 and extends between the springs 11 and the mattress 12. By this construction it will be apparent that the quilt effectually serves to prevent the entrance of cold air through the opening in the foot-board 10 to the space between the cover of the bed and the mattress and thus greatly increases the cornfort of beds having their foot-boards constructed with openings therethrough.

What is claimed is:

The herein-described foot-board quilt for beds comprising a fabric member provided with means on its upper edge for attachment to the cross bar of a foot-board, and having a padded intermediate portion, the lower end ofwhich terminates at a greater distance from the lower edge of the quilt than the upper end of the padded portion from the upper edge of the quilt, and a seam extending from side to side of said fabric and through the padded portion adjacent to and in parallel spaced relation to the lower end of said portion, whereby the lower end of the quilt including a section of the padded portion may be bent at an angle to the upper portion of the quilt for disposition beneath the mattress of the bed.

In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
