welsh quilts are often whole cloth quilts, not patchwork, and the quilting is the star-- elaborate, beautifully executed.

free pattern- 'Kantha Cat', Delightful Whole Cloth Quilt Cat Portrait, worked in technique called Kantha: a quilt (sometimes pieced with strips/ rags of cloth & sometimes a whole-cloth quilt as seen here) which is then quilted with running stitches. This is a unique piece in that the running stitches are worked to form a picture, usually the kantha style is much more random & wild! A fascinating technique- worth looking into, especially if you're interested in quilts from other cultures!
