This time a Welsh Quilt with mugs and a jug

I want to show you some favourite things in a favourite place.  They belong to great friends of mine and are photographed at their delightful cottage deep in the Welsh countryside. It was recently featured in BBC Home & Antiques magazine and it is both lovely to look at and comfortable to be in, which isn't always an easy combination to achieve.


This is a group of their mocha ware mugs and just one jug.  I share their love of mocha ware and have a few pieces too, but Philip has grouped these in front of a large Star Quilt.  Here is a longer view in which you can see more of the pattern -

 
I have seen other Welsh quilts of this design and at first glance it wouldn't strike one as a Welsh quilt, but it is and the element that confirms this is it's Welsh quilting patterning with all the familiar motifs of spirals, leave etc.

This is a view through their back door, isn't it an inspiring place?
Christine and Philip are antique dealers and they have access to wonderful things and though they have many  in their cottage, it is it still very much a home.
