Recently, I went to the Selvedge talk on Patchwork quilts at the Phoenix cinema. The curator from the V&A, was there to talk about a major new exhibition which will feature British quilts from the 1700 to now. The exhibition opened on 20th March, I hope to visit over the Easter break. After the talk, I was inspired to make a quilt of my own and decided to launch a project in the school where I work. At school all the children will be invited to decorate a square for a school quilt or possibly if we have too many, a class blanket for the book corner.
For my own quilt I have decided to use an eclectic range of fabric. I have been drawn to a simple stylised flower pattern which you can see on some of the squares. I also want the quilt or possibly throw to be in a colour pattern of grey, fuchsia, cream, turquoise and yellow.
