Look at the quilt-themed window at Barbour on Regent Street…

… that lovely people are now contacting me telling me all about their shops/websites etc. Yesterday I had an email from Izzy, who owns a quilting shop near Hampton Court Palace.
So the wonderful Julian, one of the Twisted Thread team (who organise it), sent me a little picture of something from the show that I might like: a photo of the memorial to Australian women convicts (18,000 bonnets have been collected apparently). Next year I mustn’t miss it. It’s such a brilliant event.
You want more do you? You had better head over to imagingermonkey’s wonderful Flickr photostream.
The Times is a little late with this review of the V&A’s Quilts exhibition, but it’s well worth reading anyway.
The ladies at Life and Style were coming up with some excellent headlines earlier, for this piece I wrote about them for the Guardian, here. They went for “Quilty as charged” in the end. Suitable? Who knows, but if you get a chance, do take a look. Fine Cell Work, the charity that rehabilitate prisoners through sewing, is brilliant. They’re auctioning a quilt tomorrow too, you might want to bid.
