Red Manor House Pattern
From The Quilter’s Guild of the British Isles Museum Collection.
- Detailed description
- Additional information
This mythical coverlet belongs to the Quilter’s Guild of the British Isles Collection. It was made between 1840 and 1860 by an unknown quilter, but we do know that his family who originated from Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire emigrated to South Africa, which could explain the presence of lions on some of the appliqué blocks. The original quilt is made of 95 blocs, appliqués with various animals and flowers. The quilt measures 249 x 256 cm (98″ x 101″).
Our Dutch friends Elsbeth Wallenburg and Anette Kuzee fell in love with the quilt as soon as they saw it in the museum and with the Guild’s blessing, they created an almost perfect copy, while redesigning each bloc.
We are happy and proud to be able to offer you this booklet adaptation.
