Bayeux Discipline


I mentioned that I was going to complete a small Bayeux quilt for each section of the quilt completed… That will be 25 small quilts in all and they will be in the book.

Each quilt will be a different genre and the one I'm working on now is a little irreverent, but I wanted to make a statement that this medieval work is relevant today… the designs penned by an unknown scribe almost 950 years ago still capture the imagination.

I shared the beginning of the design a few days ago… Bosham Church which features in the first 9 feet of the Bayeux Tapestry.

I love this quirky depiction of the church which still exists today.

If you go to the URL above you will get an overview of the Church. Jamie and I filmed it in detail making the documentary.

This small quilt is different. Using the vibrant colors available to us today. I've done it in traditional colors and as well as this whacky one.

Today's task is to quilt and embellish it.

    That is adorable! It made me smile with its happy colours. I love the use of the circles in the fabric too.
