British Quilt Study Group member Janet Rae takes you on a journey through the history of the Log Cabin design.
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?’.
We all like talking. We all like quilting. We like patchwork, fabric and nosing around to see how a quilt was made, too. Come and indulge yourself and join us at the ‘Our Quilt Heritage’ stand.
Many of you may be aware that the Quilters’ Guild Collection’s historic 1718 patchwork coverlet is currently being exhibited at the American Museum in Britain, Bath. Read on to hear Kate Hebert, Chief Curator, tell you about the Museum, its founders and the quilts in their collection.
Have you ever come across an old quilt and wondered – where did it come from? Who made it? How? Why? How old are these fabrics?
Quilting is the fastening together of two or more layers of fabric, with a layer of wadding or padding in between, either by stitching or knots.
