Similar to SCRAP BAG (see right), the quilt block name, JOSEPH'S COAT, refers to a biblical reference in Genesis 37:3: "Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made him a tunic of many colors."
Both the SCRAP BAG block and JOSEPH'S COAT can be pieced effectively and beautifully with fabric scraps of many colors. According to THE QUILT ID BOOK (1986), by Judy Rehmel, the SCRAP BAG design is also sometimes called JOSEPH'S COAT.
