Wonderful companion to the exhibition
on 31 March 2010
This book is a beautiful history of quilting in the UK. It is not just a catalogue of the V&A exhibition (although this is included at the end). The book tells the stories of many of the quilts shown - plus a number of others in the V&A collection -using pictures of the quilts themselves and also contemporary paintings, drawings and photographs.
Unfortunately, some of the modern quilts were obviously not finished when the book went to print and so just details are included - the biggest disappointment is that there is not a proper picture of the Wandsworth Prison Quilt.
