(Dear Readers - So far behind in my blog that it will take me months to catch up)!!!
Here is the V&A quilt finally complete.

This was the quilt made with fabric purchased from the gift shop at the V&A museum  in London.
Mum and I visited it on the 6th September in 2011, while the blokes went to the imperial war museum.
I had to look up that post to get the date!

The V&A had had a quilt exhibition the previous year and all these fabrics were based on traditional fabrics used in those quilts.

As usual I have lots of tops nearly finished.. I always seem to get board when I get to the borders (board/borders a pun! Such fun!)
Sorry, have been reading a Miranda Hart book…PEGGY AND ME. my dearest reader chums…
