New Fabric and Quilt Exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum

 

The Victoria and Albert Museum Shop in collaboration with Liberty Art Fabrics is offering a selection of limited edition fabric designs inspired by the quilts in their exhibition,
 "Quilts: 1700-2010," which opens at the museum this weekend.






There are currently 18 designs available and they are available in pre-cut sizes (fat quarter, half metre, and metre) or can be cut to size for larger orders with prices starting at £3.50. The exhibition looks amazing and will feature traditional British quilts as well as modern works from artists including Tracey Emin. If you are lucky enough to be in London, the exhibition runs from March 20 through July 4 and for those of us stuck on this side of the pond, an accompanying catalog is available. Visit the Victoria & Albert museum website for more information and images from the exhibition. The fabrics can be purchased from the V&A online shop


Exhibition curator Sue Prichard provides a unique 'behind the scenes' look at Quilts 1700 - 2010 and shares her thoughts on some of the work in progress behind this complex and challenging exhibition.


The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England just updated its website to feature over one million items in the collection. The museum has an amazing treasure collection of ceramics, furniture, and artwork. You can now tour much of the collection online — items both on view in museums and in storage are featured on the website.
