The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum has one of the largest collections of patchwork and quilted bedcovers in the British Isles, with over 600 examples, dating from 1790 to the mid-1990s. This definitive collection of Irish quilts includes examples of all the main patchwork techniques and styles, from the elaborate chintz appliques of the early  nineteenth century to a significant representation of utility quilts 1900- 1950 made from shirt and dress remnants.
