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.

Tea Cosy from Allendale

Here is a little tea cosy, probably from Allendale. It is in a crazy quilt style, with various fabrics. An embroidery stitch outlines each piece of fabric.
The size is about 11 x 14 inches.

The fabrics are in s good state, but there is a bit of colour bleeding....
The seller could not remember the exact place it came from, but she used to be in the antiques trade and went to many sales....Allendale Auctions were her favourite sale room, with lots of lovely and unexpected treasures, and she thinks that it probably came from there.
