We are thrilled to have recently acquired the contemporary wholecloth quilt ‘Slip 1, Knit 1’, made by Sandie Lush for The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles’ 7th National juried exhibition in 1999, which was held at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
At first glance, wholecloth quilts may not seem to provide much in the way of resources for research – two pieces of fabric stitched together with a filling between.
Quilt maker and designer Sandie Lush gives you the low down on how to get started in wholecloth!

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.
Get to know The Guild better by meeting our talented members! Every year we are so proud to have so many Guild Members who are winners at Festival of Quilts. We reached out to our talented member winners and asked them to share with us their quilting life, why they entered the competition, what their winning quilt means to them and where they get their inspiration. Read on and be inspired! Are you entering a quilt this year?
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.
