The Cambodian Children's Fund UK will be ready to accept bids between 1st - 10th October for this unique quilt, each patch lovingly cut and hand stitched with words of inspiration by more than 50 women from all over the world.
The project was launched earlier this year by creative textile experts, Les Soeurs Anglaises, which invited past workshop participants to enter a quilt piece to raise funds for CCF and the opportunity to win a place on a future workshop at LSA.
Les Soeurs Anglaises is hoping to raise a substantial sum by auctioning this 160 inch x 110 inch (approximate measurements) quilt backed in natural vintage French linen. Shown here is a close up of a piece showing the map of Cambodia divided into its districts and stitched with the wording "When patterns are broken .... new worlds emerge"
The quilt will be open to bids on eBay. Click onto the eBay site and search for A Textile Patchwork Quilt of Words in aid of CCF.
