The 1718 Coverlet
The 1718 Silk Coverlet is the most iconic historical quilt in The Quilters' Guild Collection and it is the oldest known dated piece of patchwork in the UK, with the date 1718 made as a block within the quilt.
In this hardback book, Susan Briscoe makes this quilt available to all with instructions on how to make each of the 69 different blocks in the traditional paper pieced method and also a more modern technique. See behind the scenes on some of the long research which went into finding out as much as we can about this wonderful coverlet.
