My quilt is (almost!) part of the V & A “Quilts 1700-2010” Exhibition

DSCN0126-1 Now here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come along every day!

In conjunction with their wonderful exhibition of quilts at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the organisers are offering quilters around the world the chance to show their work and tell its story on the V & A website.

They’re creating a “Quilt of Quilts”, a virtual quilt gallery, and as yet there are only around 124 quilts on display.  The word is spreading fast though!

I’ve uploaded one of my quilts, “Alhambra Romance”, and told its story, and I really want to encourage you to show yours too.   Just go here and follow the very easy steps to add your quilt.

Just a brief visit to this "Quilt of Quilts” reveals quilts of many types, from the humble scrappy quilt made out of a husband’s old shirts to prize-winning masterpieces.  The brief stories behind these quilts make fascinating, moving and inspirational reading, and you’ll want to revisit the site often – as I plan to do.
