1718 Coverlet


Add to Cart

Based on the oldest dated British patchwork coverlet, this book documents the efforts of Quilter's Guild of the British Isles and Susan Briscoe to recreate this amazing piece of history.

The quilt is approximately 67" x 76". The book thoroughly documents the 182 blocks in the coverlet. There are 69 different designs, but some are repeated throughout the quilt.

The book includes rotary directions where applicable, but much of the quilt will be constructed by the British mosaic method (similar to English paper piecing) or by hand.

The original quilt was constructed primarily from silks. We will be creating our version using 100% cotton fabrics, primarily small-scale 1800s reproduction prints and some solids and blenders as required to tell the color story shown similar to the replica version shown here.
