This was a bi-ennial show from this group of quilters and it was entitled ‘Coming Home;.
Linda Seward – patchwork, quiltr and author,- plays hostess and shows us round this exhibition by the London Quilters. The exhibition was on show at the Swiss Cottage Library, 88 Avenue Road, London NW3 3HA from November 17th, 2014 to January 4th, 2015. and was an exhibition of new work showcasing the diverse approaches of the groups’ many members
The group is currently 80-90 strong (that’s members not ages!) and you will see just how varied and talented they are as a group.
The quilts include personal memories and stores and Linda shares these with us on the tour.
If you would like to see the opening ceremony, which we filmed at the time – you can click on Coming Home – to enjoy it
and Tracey Chevalier – also an author and now a quilter too! – was also there – and we were fortunate enough to have a short interview with her too in front of her quilt.
The Quilt raffle is in aid of WaterAid and Noah’s Ark Hospice (and is the blue/white quilt shown on the thumbnail)
