My York Quilt and other exhibitions

I have not posted in my blog for over a month - no entries at all in October!  I have been travelling a lot,  in Germany, France, Switzerland, and various parts of the UK, teaching and attending exhibitions.

One of those was a trip to York to follow the Quilters' Guild 'Quilt City' trail.  My quilt, "Yorke 1611", inspired by the map of the time by John Speed, hangs in the Explore York Library.

The whole trail is magnificent, with quilts hanging in the Quilt Museum (Linda Barlow's commissioned quilt), many different shops and coffee shops, the Art Gallery, the theatre, etc. etc.  Worth catching up with before it closes on November 15th!

I also went to Leamington Spa where I have two quilts in "Through Our Hands", an art quilt exhibition at the Museum and Art Gallery.  That one is open until 13 January.  

And my travels have not finished yet - I am going to Totnes this week, for another exhibition - South West Textile's "Over the Rainbow"at Birdwood House, Totnes, Devon.

Hope you can visit one or more of them!  And I hope to return to some more regular and consistent posting in my blog, after next week.

Thank you for popping by!

  1. You have been busy! I love your quilt and am really disappointed not to be able to get to York to see it.
