Little Welsh Quilts and other Traditions: A link with Wales
I don't know why, because I should be wise to it now, but I am constantly finding links! It's definitely a small world and we are living in a small very crowded country! What am I on about? Well I'm sure if you are interested in patchwork you will have heard of the Brereton Bed Hanging? No! Well here's a picture - This is the best image I can find, though I do have a Japanese magazine with more detailed pictures, but it should give you a good idea of the sumptuousness and detail of these patchwork bed hangings and coverlet. They were made between 1801 and 1805 by Anna Margaretta Brereton of Brinton Hall near Melton Constable in Norfork and remained in her family until they were donated to Strangers' Hall Museum in Norwich in 1929.
