Mae'r casgliad cwiltiau a chlytwaith yn Amgueddfa Cymru yn cynnwys esiamplau o ddillad gwely o'r ddeunawfed i'r ugeinfed ganrif. Mae yma hefyd eitemau llai megis gorchudd clustogau, leinin basgedi bedydd, peisiau o'r ddeunawfed ganrif a gŵn fedydd Peter Morgan o’r Gelli Aur o 1722. Dechreuwyd ar gasgliad cwiltiau'r Amgueddfa yn y 1930au. Er bod nifer o gwiltiau wedi cael eu rhoi i'r Amgueddfa ym 1914, dim ond wedi sefydlu'r Adran Diwylliant a Diwydiant Gwerin ym 1932 y dechreuwyd casglu o ddifrif.

Greetings from Philadelphia in the United States,

My interest in quilts arises from my study of the Phenomenon of Diagonality, which emerged worldwide at the end of the 19th century and continues today. It is a little-understood and grossly underestimated artistic phenomenon that I have been studying for 50 years. I came upon the idea of diagonality when I was a student of architecture at the University of Pennsylvania (1957-63). I didn't realize the important relationship of quilts to my theme until I stumbled upon the crazy quilts motif that I am now investigating. If you are interested in knowing more about the Phenomenon of Diagonality, please check out my website devoted to that subject: When you get to the site, don't click one of the images (it will take you nowhere); go to the menu in the upper lefthand corner. You may also enjoy seeing my professional website -

Dear Gail

Thank you for your enquiry. The quilt collection remains in storage as we continue to work on our new gallery spaces. We promise it will be worth the wait! In the meantime, you will spot one or two on display in the historic buildings and you are most welcome to make an appointment to view examples in storage. However, I’m afraid we cannot fit you in the week after Easter – my diary is already full. If you would like to make an appointment over the summer, please do get in touch with me directly.

Best wishes

I was hoping to be able to visit and see the Quilt collection the week after Easter, when we are on our way to Kilgetty. Are the quilts still in storage as per your September response, or are they now out on display again? Many thanks.

You have a wonderful collection of quilts.

My mother's family hail from Rhosllanerchrugog near Wrexham and we believe that you may have a quilt in your collection that has been made by a member of our family.

My mother's maiden name was Edwards and the family lived at Bryn Celyn, Princess St.

Would you be kind enough to look into this, and let me know if this is the case.

Hwyl fawr

I enjoyed looking at the quilts on line. I plan a visit in October and was wondering how many of these lovely quilts will I be able to see when I visit.
