Time for some more Mrs Billings...

Did you know that the original Mrs Billings (Billings Coverlet) is currently on display at the York Quilt Museum and Gallery? 
(on show from now until the 31st August) Oh I wish I lived a little closer to the UK and could make a trip to see this beautiful quilt up close! To get there from here it would take about 20-24 hours by air, then a bit longer to complete the trip by road! Unfortunately this is time I don't have free just at the moment.... but if you live a little closer than me and have time to visit the original quilt, please send me a quick note and tell me how she looks! I will be very envious...

 If you would like more information about the quilt and the display visit here...

Here are a few more photos for you see of works in progress...
This one from Helene, very organised!

This colourful piece in Kaffe fabric from Maria in Denmark!

This beauty by Helen, so soft and lovely.
And this one in French General fabrics from Tara, if you would like to see more of this one check out Tara's blog.

Keep on stitching girls, I would love to see them all when they are finished,

    Thanks so much for posting all these different versions of Mrs Billings et al. I love seeing the creative use of color and such diverse interpretations. Keep it coming!

  2. This quilt has taken off. I loved seeing the different versions over the last couple of years.

  3. I was lucky enough to have a quick visit to the Museum approx. 8 weeks ago, and I viewed the Town and Country exhibition. But as they rotate their quilts on display I missed seeing the Billings Coverlet.

  4. Thank you for showing the Picture of my Mrs. Billings in the making. And thank you for showing all those lovely different versions of her. Love seeing the Pictures!

  5. Thank you so much for the shout out Karen, so much fun to see my quilt on your blog. I'm really hoping to have it quilted for November, so you'll be able to see it up close and personal!
