My boyfriend's lovely dad requested a quilt to tie in with his rugby-themed lounge. Et voila!
(The two lines underneath are the best bit in the welsh anthem-always makes him go even a little more proud to be welsh, bless!)

Oh thanks TallullahBelle! to be honest, I just bought a decent quality flag and wonderwebbed the letters on Grin I believe it translates as "true am I to my country", but being that I don't actually know anyone that speaks welsh, i could have put absolutely anything on that quilt haha!

I recognized the Welsh flag right away. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has done Welsh themed crafts! (My dad and grandfather are proud Welshmen also)
