…not a quilter.
I have done a little patchwork and quilting but I wouldn’t call myself a quilter. However, during Peter’s and my short stay in Yorkshire, I did venture into the Quilt Museum in York. The museum is managed by the Quilter’s Guild of the British Isles but, sadly, it will be closing on 31 October 2015.
The current exhibition, called “Ancestral Gifts, closes on 05 September. For the exhibition, Kaffe Fassett (the museum’s patron) selected fifteen quilts from the museum collection and then designed quilts based upon those he had chosen. Both the new quilts and those they were based upon are currently being displayed. When curating the exhibition, where possible, the old quilt and the new one based on its design were hung in close proximity to each other.
Photographs will give you a better impression of the exhibition than I could ever convey…
