Festival of Quilts - antique and traditional
The Quilters Guild of the British Isles displayed a selection of quilts from the collection under the title 'Walks of Life', including the stories of the people who made them. Some were antique, some modern. I wish we knew about the makers of all quilts.
This two sided quilt in the Traditional competition had one side with my Super Strips design in the centre.
This is the other side, with 3-D butterflies.
Most of the fabrics in this quilt were reprints made for the V&A's Quilts 1700 - 2010 exhibition.
A fascinating design and great hand quilting.
Great use of stripes...
Amazing traditional quilts in the Miniatures section (finger included for scale!)
