|"Bought on the knock" quilt|
The fabric on the front of the quilt is red and is the same design in a different colourway to the reverse. The quilting is clearly Welsh in design and has a large leaf pattern repeated 4 times and beautiful double cross hatching across the centre.
Afterwards we were treated to the Traditional group Suitcase collection of small quilts on the theme of "Building Blocks" which provoked a lively discussion on what makes a traditional quilt as a few of them seemed quite contemporary to some of us.
My favourite was a clever little quilt of nine blocks where the central blocks were made from the two blocks on either side combined. A great idea and very well executed.
It's a good idea to get together with other groups in the area and hire the suitcase for a quilt group session as this spreads the cost.
