Sandy Lush is a well known hand quilter who often uses traditional designs as inspiration and a jumping off point. This summer the Quilt Museum at Lampeter showcases a series of her hand quilted cot quilts. All develop the use of Welsh quilting designs, especially the paisley motif.
The original inspiration was this Welsh strippy from Jen Jones' collection by Mrs May Thomas.
Sandy combined the paisley motif with another pattern called the Welsh trail to create a cot quilt she called "In the Pink". Still rather a North County style format!
Excited by the design possibilities, Sandy went on to create a series of little quilts with a more Welsh flavour, having the all-over Welsh format.
See how experimentation with a few simple designs can create a great variety of results!
Varoius fabrics, plain and patterned were used....
