Aketon
Time Period: 10th-16th century
Location: Europe
Common Construction: Leather, linen or wool stuffed with canvas, cloth or hair

The aketon is a padded jacket worn under a chain mail hauberk to provide additional protection and prevent chafing. It is constructed of a heavy outer material and "quilted" or stuffed with linen, wool, or hair.

For poor soldiers that could not afford chain mail armor, the aketon served as the primary form of defense. These quilted armors developed into the gambeson, a thicker jacket designed to be worn alone. The distinction between aketon and gambeson is not universally recognized, and often the terms are used interchangeably.

I am thrilled with the new slouiettes you are offering. I am just starting with applique and this will be a wonderful help to me until I am able to start cutting out my own shapes and get familiar with the prcess of fusing shapes onto fabric. The new Block of the month idea is also interesting to me as well.

You have out done yourself!! Love the new Over The Rainbow maearitl and patterns. Can't wait to put my hands on some. Thank You for having the quilting passion.

Our granddaughters love to sitraght stitch on my machine, but I haven't got them on a quilt project. The 4 square gives me some ideas. They stay so busy with school and outside activities, most all our children never learn to sew or even thread a needle and that's good to know just for basic mending jobs. http://bpljrqqw.com [url=http://pvuorvj.com]pvuorvj[/url] [link=http://mifzypxvxue.com]mifzypxvxue[/link]

fkEWr3 It as not that I want to replicate your web page, but I really like the design. Could you tell me which style are you using? Or was it tailor made?

I'm in! I have a few fat quarters already, I just need to figure out my bacgorkund color. This is just the kick in the pants I need. I've been hesitant to have more than one project going on at the same time but Swoon is so hard to resist. :o)
