Torre Abbey

Back to Torquay and Torre Abbey next door to the centre where there was an exhibition of quilts from the Quilters' Guild collection both old and new, as the Guild seeks to collect or commission works by significant quilters. Deirdre Amsden, Dinah Travis, Pauline Burbidge and Sara Impey were represented here.
Mosaic Quilt while the one to the right is a colourwash by Deirdre Amsden and to the left a text quilt by Sara Impey.


This is an earlyish  piece by Pauline Burbidge: I like her quilts from this time.

A Canadian Red Cross quilt sent over in the war.
