Victoria & Albert Museum, London, U.K., Exhibition “Quilts 1700 – 2010” on Through July 18, 2010

The Spectacular exhibit of quilts dating from  1700’s to 2010 is now open at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, U.K., which will be on until July 18, 2010.

There is so much interest in this showing of British quilts that span such a vast time period.   I have heard that record attendance was reported for the first few days of the show.

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

Photos are the Museum’s.
