Historic Quilt Show, V&A London
I am not a quilter, but do love traditional handskills, and this exhibition at the V&A was well worth visiting.Not only did I have a great day "off" yesterday, but was so inspired by the lovely old fabrics and stitching of the quilts. They dated back to the 1700s up untill the present time, and the docmentation and personal histories relating to some of them is intruiging....so much so that I bought the book of the exhibition and have gained even more imput, at this late stage for my major progect. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who loves traditional English handcrafts and history.
