Central block of our group quilt

I completed my Quay Quilters' applique before setting off for Somerset but have yet to quilt it. At Montacute House, a National Trust property I was allowed to take a photo minus flash of this 17th crewel worked bedspread.

Wonderful hedge at Montacute House

The backing was later and the crewel work had been lifted off the old backing and stitched down on a new one. Make do and mend.

Love the centre motif it will really bring all of the blocks together. I do admire crewel work will have a go one day.
