The Inspirations Quilt

Wow!  Well, the Quilt Museum have done an amazing job of putting all our patches together and it’s now up for all to see in the education room at the museum – I met up with Melanie, the museum’s education officer to see the end result and here are some pictures….

The finished Inspirations Quilt! Well, one side of it anyway......!

The clever volunteers who helped Melanie put it together decided to make it double-sided in the end, so when it goes ‘on tour’ we’ll try and make sure people get to see both sides of it!  We had so many patches that they couldn’t fit them all on without spoiling the effect, so we’re also going to make a folder with the remaining patches so people can see how they were made and find out more about the project – we’ll put it on display with the quilt.

Thanks so much to everyone who took part – we had great fun organising it, and I think you’ll agree, the end result is really fantastic – York is just full of creative adults and we’re really glad you all got involved.

  1. The quilt looks fabulous…so glad we ran this in conjunction with The Quilt Museum and what a brill job they’ve done of putting the finished piece together. I’m off with the kids to see it tomorrow in situ!
