A Durham Quilter

Quilting is definitely the theme of this week… While researching, I came across this wonderful photograph of a quilter, credited to the Beamish Museum in Durham. Apparently, they have an extensive quilt collection -   http://www.beamish.org.uk/about-collection.html

It’s fascinating to see both a quilt ‘in process’ and a representation of an historical quilter like this. Notes on the image suggest its ‘circa’ 1950s though it looks like it could be a little earlier, based on comparisons with other images, maybe nearer 1930s?
