Quilt

This may be a strange question but the townhouse that we are staying at has a beautiful all white quilt. Is this something that is typically made in Barbados? Is there somewhere that I might purchase this kind of quilt?

Thanks.

Have you thought of asking the people where you're staying?

It's a rental agency so not sure if they will know but I will ask. I was also going to ask the maid service when they come on Friday.

without seeing it, I'd have to take a guess to say that it's not likely made here.. I do know several people (my husbands has a cousin or 2) that do quilting... however, I've never heard of anyone doing this on a regular basis.. but you never know..

I would say that it is most likely to have have been purchased from a shop like "Dwellings" in Barbados and made abroad, or it was brought in by the owner from wherever he/she lives. I have never seen quilts made in Barbados but as Sunnie says, you never know !! Oneof my bed spreads was made in Barbados with beautiful material bought from " Abeds "on Swan Street, but it is not quilted .

If you contact the agent they can ask the owner.
