We caught up with three groups this month who have taken their inspiration from the 1718 Silk Patchwork Coverlet in our souvenir supplement. Here we share one group’s quilts in more detail in this online gallery.
Once a month for the last three years, patchwork and quilting teacher Joy Edgington, of Pastures New Quilting, has been helping quilters to discover the heritage and techniques behind the creation of Britain’s oldest dated patchwork. Her students have done her proud and many of their replica quilts will be heading to the Festival of Quilts this autumn. Here’s a sneak preview…
- See more tribute quilts from the School of Art, Design and Computer Science at York St John’s University and Thistle Quilters in Edinburgh, in issue 38 of Today’s Quilter magazine.
