Throwback Thursday is a new linky organised by 'J' of A Quarter Inch from the Edge.
We are asked to show something from the past that we have not blogged about before. So here is my first something from the past!
A few weeks ago a friend here in France posted on facebook this picture.
Which rang a bell with me.This is known as the 'Battersea Shield' and is a Celtic bronze shield covering from around the 1st-2nd century BC which was found in the River Thames in 1857. You can click on the link to find out more about it.
In 1988 I used the design on the shield as the basis for a cot quilt design for my niece Kate and this is it.
Apologies for the poor picture - it is a scan of a photograph but I think you can see the design. All hand quilted. Sorry I can't tell you the dimensions but it is a cot quilt.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else links up with.
Wow, what a gorgeous quilt. You've been making beautiful quilting designs for a long time. ;)ReplyDelete

Wow, this is amazing and beautiful, and ahead of it's time, since it was made in the 80's. I didn't know anyone was doing this kind of quilting that long ago. Lucky, lucky niece!ReplyDelete
