Everyone has a slightly different perception of a crazy quilt but usually we think of such quilts as being very colourful, heavily embellished with applique, embroidery and other stitchery all on top of a fabric base.
Join us as we explore elements of The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection through themes selected by The Guild’s Curator, Heather Audin. Today’s theme is ‘What’s on the back?’.
The deadline for entries for The Vlieseline Fine Art Textiles Award 2020 has been extended until Monday 1st June.
We are delighted to announce the launch of The Virtual Competition 2020, a brand-new initiative to replace the standard competition Upper Street Events usually host at the Festival of Quilts.
Join us as we explore the wonderful world of British quilting heritage through our exclusive series of patterns inspired by The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection.
The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection features quilts and coverlets that have been created using any of the allied crafts of patchwork, quilting and appliqué.
How do we define appliqué? Basically it is applying a shaped piece of fabric to a base fabric.
