A carpet blanket used by a member of the Texas Brigade in 1862 survives.  Apparently purpose-made rather than something ripped up from a floor, the blanket was pieced with no concern for matching the pattern and one panel was cut in half and hemmed to stretch the stock of carpet into more blankets.  We're working on having some carpet woven up for blankets!
