American quilt museum Bath

Good morning to all.

Today I thought I would show you a fabulous museum in Bath.  It really is a wonderful day out.

The address is :

American quilt museum
Claverton Manor
Bath

Tel..... 01225 460503
             

I have been before but would really like to visit again.  There are wonderful quilts on show, which were hand sewn.  You can walk through and wonder at how long some of them must have taken, it really is incredible.

Also there is a café and stunning grounds to walk around.  This place is well worth a visit for anyone who has a love of stitching of any kind.  You want to come out of there and straight to a fabric shop to get your materials to make a wonderful quilt for yourself.... so be advised!

Today for me is some cooking that  I must do but some lovely time in my work room stitching, designing and making some fabric covered buttons for a Stocking.

I will leave you with some great pictures.  Have a great day.

The lovely grounds at Claverton Manor.

 
This quilt belonged to the Yarnell family who were quakers.
