Welsh Quilt from Whitland

Welsh Quilt by Anna Davies

This double side golden yellow whole cloth/patchwork quilt was made by Anna Davies of Penybont Cwmfelin Mynach, Whitland, Carmarthenshire. Born in 1895, she never married and remained at home after the death of her father who was the village blacksmith. Although she was somewhat younger, her quilting was definately influenced by that of Bariah Adams Lewis, Fanny Lewis and several other exceptional quilters all living in the immediate environs of Whitland. Claire Claridge is doing some research on these quilters; it seems that all lived with in walking distance of each other, and shared quilting patterns amongst themselves.
