Here is a quilt from Scotland. I don't know very much about Scottish quilts, and apart from one marked Allendale quilt that came from Ayr, this is the only quilt that I have that comes from Scotland. This quilt came from a house clearance in Dingwall, which is in the Highlands.
The quilt is rectangular and measures 63 x 78 inches. The fabric is a pink cotton sateen. There is a central flower, with diamond infill surrounded by straight lines with a simple twist. the outer border has a bellows pattern with daisies in the corners.
Another photo of the central flower motif.
The edge is neatly machine sewn..
There are large daisies - this was a popular pattern. The wadding is a thick cotton filling.
So far I have only heard about the Scottish Hawick quilts...but this is a beautiful piece, too! Simple, but striking. Thank you for posting!ReplyDelete
