I'm not sure how well these photo's have turned out but I went back to Shepton mallet today to buy a picture i had been thinking about all week and had decided to buy. The shop I went into was called
"One Galley" and the lady working inside was quilting by hand so of course I had to see what she was doing and it was amazing. She had taken dresses that she had handmade for her daughters when they were children and made them into a quilt as she couldn't bear to cut them up.
The first picture shows the handquilting from the back.
This one shows the dresses with their smocking still in place. the lady's name is Rosalind Gregory and she had some great cushions in the shop as well.
