This photograph was taken at the Weald & Downland Museum, West Sussex.
At that time I was involved in a project to make a quilt commemorating the museum’s 40th anniversary and these photographs were my starting point. Along with several other women, I made two blocks to put in the quilt. They were made to strict guidelines and in cotton fabric. The resulting quilt is beautiful and well worth a look if you go to the museum.
Now I’m planning to start a quilt of my own based on this beautiful museum. I’m thinking of wools & linens for the blocks and my starting point will be my photograph collection.
If you would like to see a trial run for this type of quilt look here.
Over the next few weeks I will show how I get from my first thoughts about a quilt to an actual quilt. I hope you’ll find it useful.
