Scottish Splendour
Tartan Quilts

A striking quilt showcasing elements of Scotland’s tradition and culture.

The cream central panel of 27½ x 27½ in / 70 x 70cm features appliquéd Celtic patterns in red and green plus Scotland’s national flower/plant – the thistle. This is surrounded by a narrow mid-blue border which is followed by a 5in / 13cm  “flying geese” border. A variety of  tartans form the “geese” and the corner squares on point. Red and cream  narrow borders frame the complete central panel. The quilt is further enhanced by Celtic knotwork designs in tartan on a mid-blue border of 6½ in /16.5cm.  Finally borders of 2¾ in / 7cm in cream and red finish this colourful quilt.

All the Celtic patterns have been inspired by Celtic Illuminated Art in the Gospel Books of Durrow, Lindisfarne and Kells.
