TALKING QUILTS REALLY has travelled the length and breadth of the country in the last twelve months, capturing the stories of quilters from Scotland (Region 16), the South East (Kent, Surrey and Sussex, Region 2) and the South West (Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, Region 4). In 2016, the Project will visit the counties of the West Midlands that form Region 11, as well as Region 9 (Cambridgeshire and Norfolk).
So far 120 quilters have been interviewed by a dedicated team of over 40 volunteers. Each interview is recorded and transcribed, as well as documentary photographs taken of the quilter with their quilt. It is an amazing achievement and, ultimately, the Collection will provide us with a fascinating snapshot of quilting in the UK today.
