1718 Coverlet Workshops

with Susan Briscoe

The 1718 Coverlet is one of the earliest known pieces of patchwork. It is made in silk and the centre block has the initials E H and the year 1718. It was purchased by the Quilters Guild in 2000 from the Brown family of Aldbourne, Wiltshire. No details about E H have been discovered.

Susan Briscoe has now written a book for the Quilters Guild about this coverlet.
