Here is a Durham quilt with very nice quilting patterns. A large quilt, this one measures 76 x 91 inches. It is in very good condition; the seller was from West Rainton, which is near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and said that this quilt came from a house clearance. The owner of the house had been a lecturer at either Durham or Newcastle Universty.
The patterns are very well stitched and the quilt is in good condition....there is an inner field with paired feather plumes,separated by a border with a twist, then an outer border with stouter feathers and a final narrow border with twist.
Daisies are found in each corner...
The edges are neatly sewn...all in all a well made quilt.
This quilt reminded me of another quilt, the one made by a WI group in Sunderland or Washington in the late 40's......again, we see pairs or feather plumes, but with a flower at the junction.
