A Welsh Country Quilt

While browsing my pictures I came across this image -


I can't remember when I took it but it was on a visit to Jen's little Welsh cottage (see below) which is now her shop.  Isn't it the perfect setting for this unpretentious quilt?



These simple country quilts were made of large patchwork pieces quite quickly sewn together, but then came the long laborious but wonderful quilting that simply transformed it!  Just zoom in and examine the patterning.  I just love these quilts!

There's a great article about Jen and her quilts in the current edition of  HOMES AND ANTIQUES  magazine.  Follow the link and here.

The quilt really is beautiful. I would not think that quilt made from large pieces of fabric could look so great, but as you say, it is all in the quilting.
