The 1718 Coverlet is one of the earliest known pieces of patchwork. It is made in silk and the centre block has the initials E H and the year 1718. It was purchased by the Quilters Guild in 2000 from the Brown family of Aldbourne, Wiltshire. No details about E H have been discovered.
Susan Briscoe has now written a book for the Quilters Guild about this coverlet.
Susan will be teaching a three day retreat here at The Royal Bridlington in October 2015 on the Coverlet. Susans' other area of expertise is Sashiko and she will be holding a one day workshop here prior to the Coverlet retreat.
The dates will be Sunday 18th October for the Sashiko and the coverlet will commence on Monday 19th October.
