    How do others say "quilt"?

    Not sure why this just hit me, but I was wondering about the word "QUILT" and how said and spelled in other languages. So PLEASE share if you speak another language!

    I am just curious. One of those moments when the brain went "hmmmmm"

    Sometimes my French friends call it "Patches" and sometimes "boutis". or coourtepoint.
    Others from Google Translate:
    peplomo from Esperanto, tumahi from Filipino, deche from German, poplan from Hungarian, edredon from Spanish, yorgon from Turkish, calcha from Portugese, trapunta from Italian~~~~
    Just don't call a QUILT a "blanket" as I think there is a difference. ();-)

    Go to the Google translate which is under more at the top of their page. Put in English and then click on which language you want to know about. Quilt under Spanish is edredón. French is courtepointe.

    Correction on the german part.

    Eine Decke, is a blanket, which we all know is not a quilt.
    Eine Steppdecke, is a quilt. Consistent of three layers.

    If life gives you scraps, make an angel quilt out of it!
