'Dryslwyn Dreams' - finished
Quilting in the ditch and the 'knife edge' finish was all done on Monday and the quilt is off for photography at the moment. I'll have more news about the magazine that will be featuring the pattern very soon. It is based on the quilt on page 37 of Janet Rae's 'Quilts of the British Isles' (1987) and, when the book was published, it was in Jen Jones' collection. More about my remake here.
I thought 'Dryslwyn Dreams' was a good title, as I have never seen the original coverlet (no wadding) in real life and, in the book, I can't make out all the fabric details too closely, so mine is a very loose interpretation of original design.
