Default Scottish Quilt Patterns

Does anyone have a pattern that is obviously Scottish in origin or look? My brother has asked for a quilt that would be of Scottish design or look. I know the Celtic Knot is one that would work, but he didn't say that, just Scottish. I'd love to see or know of as many as possible so I can sit with him to choose which he would like. Thanks in advance. Overlander/Barb

Do you know what your family tartan is? Or your family crest? Both would be great to use. My son-in-laws family crest has a blue & yellow pinwheel in the center. I was thinking of making him a quilt with that design.

Something with a scottish thistle would be very traditional. Google images of scottish quilts. You will get loads of ideas.

Here are a few I found

Maybe a scrappy quilt with all plaids?

Speaking of Scottish, I have just finished watching all the series of Monarch of the Glen and now I am interested in Scottish history and traditions. There were a few quilts shown in the shows, mostly traditional pieced patterns. Wonderful family show!

Here is another link I just found, quilt inspired by floor tiles from St. Andrews Cathedral in Inverness. This is a beauty!

Unfortunately the directions don't include a pattern for the applique but you may be able to duplicate it on your own by downloading the photo and enlarging it.

This only makes a 40" wall hanging. You could probably enlarge it with borders or a round of blocks to enlarge it.

Missouri Star has a tutorial for this plus a template and papers . Find it at there home site or you tube under periwinkle tutorial. Hope this is a help

Funnily enough I am doing a log cabin in blues with a white square - the square is bigger than normal so that I can quilt a thistle in the centre its for a scottish friend of mine
