So I've been thinking about dabbling in quilting. Well, I guess I've done more than think about it since I bought the fabric.
When I saw this special edition fabric from the V&A museum, I knew I had to make a quilt out of it. (And for someone that does not quilt, that's a strong reaction.) The fabric was made to commemorate the exhibit called Quilts 1700 - 2010. All 18 printed cottons feature designs from the V&A quilt collection. Most of the designs are dated from the late 1700s/early 1800s. The V&A collaborated with Liberty (shocker, I know!) to reproduce these prints. The only bad thing was that I couldn't see this exhibit in person. But sewing this quilt will be the next best thing.
The V&A is hands down my favorite museum in London. When I lived there, I would spend countless hours looking at their costumes and textile archives. So it only seems fitting to create a quilt that reminds me of that time.
