Little Welsh Quilts are striking, with bold colours and simple shapes. They look magnificent as bed quilts but are also distinctive when scaled down to cradle size or smaller.
Welsh quilts are intensively hand quilted with their traditional motifs, so making a little quilt is a great way for a beginner to start on a Welsh quilting journey.
Little Welsh Quilts: Made the traditional way, is an ebook with video demonstrations by the author Mary Jenkins, presenting six delightful quilts to make. They vary in style and complexity but are all based on original full-sized square or rectangular Welsh wool quilts.
If not actually used for a doll or cot quilt they make delightful decorations for the home, either as wall hangings or cushions, giving any home the Welsh country look. They are small so can be made from a few fat quarters but any precious scraps can be added in.
Together with the stitcher’s choice of colours, the distinctive quilting motifs will give these little quilts their authentic Welsh identity.
Also included is plenty of Mary Jenkins’ expert advice on the traditional techniques she uses to design and create her Welsh quilts, always quilted by hand.
Mary wrote (co-authored with Clare Claridge) the authoritative book Making Welsh Quilts, which has become a seminal work on Welsh quilting. She also wrote House and Garden Samplers (both titles David & Charles).
‘a refreshing change from the other quilt books on the market, in both its format and content.’ – The Sewing Directory
She can also be found on Instagram discussing Welsh Samplers.
