Today has been a special quilting day. I was invited to the press preview of the Quilts 1700-2010 exhibition at the V&A London.
I travelled to London with my quilting buddy Hazel and we have had a fabulous day.
I was invited due to the writing of this blog and quite a few quilting bloggers were there. We were allowed to take photos as long as we use them to promote the exhibition so here are the first batch.
These photos are of the 'Sundial Coverlet' - one of my favourite quilts in the exhibition. I loved it because it was so old - predating most American antique quilts and I loved it for its intricate piecing.
It reminds me of the 'Dear Jane' American Civil War Quilt of 1863 but it is 66 years older and it is English.
Liberty's have made special reproduction fabrics from some of the quilts - I just had to buy a fat quarter or 6!
