Mrs Billings in York!

One of my long time wishes has been to visit the original Billings Coverlet in the Quilt Museum of the British Isles. This week my dream came true! Sue and I have travelled to the UK to make a special visit to the museum and visit with this amazing quilt. We were treated to a private viewing and when all was done my Mrs Billings was laid out for the curator Heather to see… and here she is placed carefully on top of the original. One interesting fact we learned was the the original quilt was a simple coverlet with no backing, many of the original papers are still in situ!

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in York, check out the museum! If you are interested in viewing the quilt for yourself, contact the museum and find out when or where it might be on show!
Thank you to all of the wonderful ladies we met including Heather and Christine…. Sue and I had a wonderful day!
Chat soon, Karen
