This is a lovely Welsh quilt.

‘Museum curators are appealing for help about a little known Victorian tailor who made a prized piece of art, a Welsh quilt.’

Can you tell St Fagan’s museum anything about James Williams, the Wrexham tailor who made this from 4,500 pieces of wool cloth in 1842? (via the BBC)
