A thoroughly wonderful book. Plenty to read and see. I loved reading the history of these quilts and how they were made. Beautiful pictures of antique Welsh quilts (I love to look at old quilts and wonder about the people that made them) and then a chance to make them using today's fabrics. What can I say. I just enjoyed this book so much. I would like to see others like it on other regions of the British Isles.

I love this book. It begins with a history of Welsh quiltmaking, but also integrates more historical information throughout the practical sections too.
The sample quilts and the chapter on quilting are all presented in a style that encourages you to branch out with your own ideas whilst giving you enough instruction to be sure you understand what you are doing.
Each of the authors bring a different approach, with Mary's being more traditional and Clare's more modern, but both base their designs on real Welsh quilts from the heyday of quilt making, all illustrated.
Interesting, clear and inspirational.

I agree with the other reviews, it is an interesting book to read and you can make the quilts but they are very small quilts. I would have liked the original sizes or at least something to fit a bed, they would not even make a very useful sofa quilt.
