Hand Sewn Quilts
It is not often that we have a quilter arrive at The Old Rectory Country House unless they are on one of our quilting retreats. My daughter Aoife is working on a similiar project so we had lots of questions for her and it was lovely to hear the story behind the quilt she was making. She had made a wedding quilt for her daughters best friend the year before and she was making this quilt from the pieces that were left over from it. It is unusual to find someone in this modern age who still only makes completely hand sewn quilts, such love goes into a project like this one.
