Features of the quilt design

  • (1) You can create a quilt with a bordering: Among the quilts, there are two types of quilts with a border: the stained glass quilt (left figure) and the Celtic quilt (right figure) shown below. In stained glass quilts, the bordering is often used with thin black bias tape to clarify the division of parts. The Celtic quilt, as shown here, represents the Celtic pattern with a border, and is the subject and characteristic of itself. In Islam Style quilts, the parts are also separated by bordering, but the original color can change the overall atmosphere, so it can be considered an important subject, so it can be thought of as having the characteristic of both stained glass quilts and Celtic quilts.
