Had a weekend away in York and visited the Quilt Museum http://www.quiltmuseum.org.uk/
It's a great place to visit
The roof beams were impressive in the main gallery space.
This quilt was made out of what looked like silk fabric and the black diamonds were velvet. The pieces were tiny and the quilter had finished the edges with a long stitch of gold coloured thread. It looked like a stained glass window.
There was the Red House quilt with all its hand applique work, all sewn in tiny herringbone stitch so neat.
Don't know where this quilt was made but when I was wandering round York there was a Red House
The Quilt Museum is closing at the end of this year, apparently, they don't make enough money keep it open. They will still retain their collection of 800 quilts and will continue to lend them out to Museums. Its such a shame for it to close.
