"This is a wonderful tour. T he scenery was fabulous and the attention to details and behind the scenes quilt visits spectacular." "I learned so much about quilts and quilt history on this tour of England. Quilting and patchwork have a long and fascinating history in the UK and Ireland and can be traced back to medieval times. There are a number of first class collections to view, often focusing on local styles and traditions, as well as regular events and exhibitions, which make a tour of the UK and Ireland a must for all those interested in these age-old crafts. The Copp Collection continues to provide insights into New England family life of that period. Whole cloth quilts were most popular between 1775 and 1840, although before 1800 they were relatively rare and expensive. This eighteenth-century example from the Copp family is a glazed indigo wool quilt.
