The Victoria and Albert Museum is holding its first ever exhibition of British quilts.
The exhibition features about 70 quilts dating from 1700 to the present day, including examples from the V&A's unseen quilt collection as well as key national loans.
Highlights include a sumptuous silk and velvet bedcover dating back to the late 17th century, to more recent work by Grayson Perry and Tracey Emin. Commissions for the exhibition include work by contemporary artists including Susan Stockwell.
The exhibition, curated by Sue Prichard, runs until 4 July.
Interview, photographs and production by Caroline Briggs.
