British and Irish Isles Quilt

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

The meticulously appliqued islands of Ireland and the British Isles are made with gold polysilk stitched onto a soft backing of pale blue cotton; roads and ocean topography are entirely hand-stitched. These throw-sized quilts measure approximately 60" x 72" and can be machine-washed on a gentle cycle.

City names embroidered on the map include: the Hebrides, the Orkneys, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, York, Liverpool, London, Bristol, Belfast, Galway, Dublin, Cork.
