This exhibition will showcase the V&A’s collection of patchwork and quilted covers to bring together over 300 years of British quilting history, from the spectacular bed hangings and silk coverlets of the 18th century, to the creative reinvention of the quilt by contemporary artists.

If you’re planning a trip to U.K. during the exhibit, you’ll want to get to the V & A Museum!
