The 1718 Coverlet

The 1718 Coverlet by Susan Briscoe

You have been asking for a book on the 1718 Silk Patchwork Coverlet – well the wait is over as for the past year we have been collaborating Susan Briscoe to bring this to fruition. The book is scheduled for publication in August with royalties supporting the charitable aims of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles including caring for and exhibiting The Collection.

Featuring a comprehensive directory of every block in the coverlet, both original and modern instructions are provided for you to create your own replica coverlet or other smaller projects. You will also learn about the history of the coverlet and how it was painstakingly replicated as a Guild project completed in 2004 using the original techniques.
