This month’s National Trust Magazine includes an article on a project at the NT property Killerton. In order to raise money to conserve their collection of 100,000 textile items, a team of volunteers has worked on a quilt to be raffled. The quilt includes techniques including applique, embroidery, beading, couching and hand-quilting.
The article includes step-by-step instructions to create a bee motif, which appears 20 times in the quilt.
