5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful gallery of quilts, 30 Jun 2005
This review is from: Patchworks of Lucy Boston (Hardcover)
This book features the quilts made by Lucy M Boston who wrote the children's books about Green Knowe. Lucy Boston was expert at making patchwork quilts and worked right up to the time of her death.
No patterns are given for the quilts in the book but they are hardly necessary because in most cases the size of the templates used is given and it would be easy to draft your own. Lucy Boston worked her quilts using the English Piecing method and many of the quilts use very small pieces and complex designs including very intricate eight pointed star blocks. The book is well written and beautifully presented, and gives an interesting insight into her life at The Manor, Hemmingford Grey.
This is one of my favourite patchwork books and I read the Green Knowe children's books many times as a child, it is quite fascinating to see the quilts, some of which are mentioned in these books as part of the story.
Visits can be arranged by appointment to The Manor during which you will see the actual quilts themselves, and details can be found at [...] I recommend this lovely book whether or not you plan a visit and whether or not you have read the children's books. It can quite easily stand on its own as an outstanding presentation of many really beautiful patchwork quilts.
