    Smile What makes a quilt a Welsh Quilt?

    I was asked by a friend for some websites and quilt stores that I frequent because she wanted to find some quilt kits. She said her mother-in-law was going to make the quilt and that she does Welsh quilting. What exactly makes this type quilt different? I have never heard of this before. I know you guys would be able to tell me everything I needed to know.

    To me, it's the quilted motifs that make them instantly recognizable as "Welsh" quilts, as opposed to American whole cloth or Amish quilts.
    More "earthy" looking.
    Love them.

    Here's a fabulous blog devoted to the style:

    Here's a great book on the subject:

    And here's the QB's resident hand quilting expert (at least I think so), BorntoHandQuilt, with a better explantion in a post from last year (btw, the whole thread was full of great information on wholecloths, etc):
