More from Victoria & Albert Museum

This museum is so great that we went back again today. I'm so glad because I found this whole cloth hand quilted beauty from the 1300s in amazing shape!!

  7. When I was in London 3 years ago I almost didn't visit the V&A but saw an advert in the tube for a quilt exhibit that was going on there (!) so I had to go see that. I only spent one day there but could easily have spent 2 or 3 days on all the exhibits. One interesting thing in the quilt exhibit that was being shown there was that there were quilts done by Navy men from the 1700s - 1800s from all sorts of "found" materials - wool, cotton, twill and whatever they could find on board.
