Castleside Strippy Quilt

This delightful pink and white strippy quilt from the Quilters Guild Museum Collection is comprised of two patterns, the cable and a bellows design with a half  daisy.

It was made between 1900 and 1906 by Mrs Ann Forrest who was a student in the Castleside Quilting Circle.

The cable is quilted using 6 lines of stitching on the pink strips

The bellows design (on the white strips.) has a lovely flow to it and is an attractive strip that could be used as a border as well as in a strippy quilt. 

It certainly is a strip I will use in my own work as I like the countryside daisy motif with the flowing wavy line creating a fresh contemporary design .
