This link has come in from Rowena Buxton, a fellow Kenya Quilt Guild member: Bosna Quilt Werkstatt, quilts made by Bosnian women.

Look closely at the random quilting patterns these women use on their work, reminiscent both of early Amish, and early Welsh in patchwork design but without the full-blown geometric or floral quilting patterns we’re accustomed to seeing there.

These quilts and their history look set to give Gee’s Bend a run for their money!

Thanks for sharing, Rowena!
