What a wonderful, wonderful experience! Our first really big show nearly blew us off our feet and we are still overwhelmed by the warm welcome and the keen interest so many quilters showed for the IBS1 quilts and for our 2nd International Block Swap.

England/Wales 2013: The 2nd day - Jane Austen and the first glimpses of Bath

England/Wales 2013: The 2nd day - Jane Austen

The underlying motif of this trip being literature, a stop at Chawton House was indispensable on our way westward. Here, Jane Austen lived with her mother and sister Cassandra after her father's death. It was one of the most productive periods as a writer and she revised and rewrote some of her major novels and finished her last novel, Persuasion.

England/Wales 2013: The 1st day - V&A and Liberty

The first destination after landing at Heathrow Airport was the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. One of the greatest museums in the whole world and one where you can certainly get lost for a week and not even realize that you haven't been home for a while...

The 2013 Quilt Trip to England and Wales

The 2013 quilt trip takes us to England and Wales - threading our path through the beautiful English and Welsh landscape to find the quilt treasures on display here. And not only the quilt treasures!
