1900 - 1925

This plain wool quilt combines the strong colours of brown, red, blue and yellow to produce an eye-catching frame quilt with an eight pointed star in the centre and at each corner. The pieced design and elaborate quilting motifs are then framed by a prairie point edge in brown and blue.

The quilting design is set out in the traditional Welsh frame layout, with a central medallion and very distinctly defined borders. The quilting motifs include spirals, four petal flowers, leaves and the Welsh Scissors motif. Unfortunately, very little is known about the maker, other than it is thought that she came from a farming family in Wales.
