Whats in a name?

One of the best things about our meetings is that as we take it in turns to 'host' we often get to glimpse bits and pieces of each other's textile collections!

Liz brought out this wonderful late Victorian quilt 
- made in about 1890ish in silks, taffetas, silk ribbons, silk and cotton velvets 
and backed with papers written on in copper-plate script which may be letters. 







Liz can't find a maker's name and was saying how
 it made her think about how often we do 
name our work and why... or why not...

It is a beautifully preserved vibrant quilt - one to dream over.
