Patchwork and Quilting in Britain by Heather Audin

£8.99

Patchwork quilts are hugely evocative emblems of our domestic past. With no two quite the same, each example hints both at the story of the particular household in which it was produced and at a larger piece of social history. With patchwork seeing a huge revival in popularity in recent years, items that were once made for purely utilitarian and practical reasons are now produced and appreciated for the connection they afford us to a rich vein of heritage and nostalgia.

Author Heather Audin is curator of the Quilters’ Guild Collection and this book is illustrated with a stunning range of images from the Guild’s collection. This book is a wonderful introduction to a hugely important aspect of British domestic history.
