This beautiful log cabin patchwork cushion came from the Aberaeron district of Ceredigion in West Wales. The 16 blocks of Sunshine and Shadow pattern have been pieced by hand with very narrow strips of velvets and silks. Some of the silks have degraded. The backing is a twill weave cotton in a tan colour, machined around 3 sides, with the other side closed with over-sewn black thread.
The cushion measures 455 x 440mm, and is probably filled with feathers.
