I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Catalogue - Its All in the Making - Patchwork and Quilting Unpicked

It's All in the Making - Patchwork and Quilting Unpicked

The publication accompanying the exhibition, is beautifully designed and illustrated throughout in full colour. As well as a catalogue section with images and descriptions of all the exhibits, It's All in the Making contains five informative essays by leading writers and researchers in the field of quiltmaking.

Bridget Long writes on the ground breaking research into the 1718 silk patchwork coverlet while Dorothy Osler, Carolyn Ferguson, Rachel Terry and Dr. Sue Marks each give insight in the four themes in the exhibition: making to earn money; making for gifts or to commemorate special events; making out of necessity, and creative making.

The price is £12.50 and the catalogue is available now via the Quilt Museum Store in York:
