Quilts to take your breath away


* Jan Wallis with some of her work.

Panelled walls, a four poster bed, and an intricately carved door.

This is embroidered quilting to take your breath away.
It has taken textile artist Jan Wallis two years to complete the work, based on 16th and 17th century wood carvings at Plas Newydd in Llangollen and the whole installation, together with ghostly trees and mythical beasts is on show in Y Caban, the gallery in the grounds of Plas Newydd until  July 29th.
