Quilt LocationQuilt address: Barnard Castle, Durham, UK
03/04/1923 - I bought this quilt earlier in the year in Barnard Castle, Durham and believe that it was made in the 1930’s. Both sides are cotton sateen, one an old-gold colour and the other a very pale pink, the wadding is cotton-wool . It is beautifully hand-quilted in a very well laid out strippy design which includes plaits, bellows and running feathers and has a central motif of a large Durham Rose surrounded by leaves. I think that this quilt may have been made for ’best’ as the quilting is much finer than that in a ‘Club’ quilt that I also have..
