Quilts 1700-2010: Hidden Histories, Untold Stories.

I spent the weekend in Milton Keynes visiting family. On Saturday me & my mum popped down to London to the V&A to see their quilt exhibition. The range of work was amazing, I am in awe of the tiny stitches, the planning & the perseverance. Each quilt told a story, from a wounded solider making a military quilt to Caren Garfen's 'how may times do I have to repeat myself' quilt looking at the role of women within the home. The show is on till the 4th of July, if you get the chance, I can certainly recommend it.

Also check out the summer edition of UK handmade, beautiful inspirations & tips!
