I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Yellow and White Stamped Quilt

Here is a lovely quilt - one side white and the other a soft yellow. It has a design which seems to have been a fairly common one, with a central design surrounded by two offset squares which firm an outer star. 

The centre has a daisey surrounded by proud ferns.

Large corner motifs seem to be pointed ferns.

There is a nice scroll and feather outer border, which is not turned but has a cross hatched corner.

Another look at a corner.

The reverse is a gentle yellow in cotton sateen.

The edge has the usual double line of machine stitching.

A few blue marks. This pencil must have been very sturdy as it often remains for a long time and quite a few washes.
