Antique Textiles Company, London, UK

What a joy to visit the Antique Textiles Company in the heart of London and see beautiful, well crafted handmade quilts.

I have always adored English Paper Piecing (EPP) techniques.  It is a very time consuming process of cutting hundreds of tiny hexagon papers and then adhering each hexagon to a piece of fabric with thread.  Designing shapes with these hexagon fabrics creates intricate and complex designs. 

The whole store was filled with beautiful quilts. 
Each quilt had a story and contained so much history.  
The textile's weave, color and design can tell you which region the textile came from.
The owner, Christopher Wilson-Tate, was very helpful and knowledgable about each quilt's history and story.
