In Memory of Barbara

  • Barbara Bailey Postage Stamp Quilt 1987. The Quilters' Guild Collection.

Barbara Bailey was a founding member of The Quilters’ Guild who combined her love of gardening with her love of patchwork. Among the items on show will be miniatures, a ‘postage stamp’ quilt made of one-inch squares and a frame quilt with a printed panel of Queen Victoria in the centre, given to Barbara by her mother.

Appropriately, Barbara’s life and work will be commemorated in the Quilt Museum gallery that bears her name – a permanent reminder of her generous legacy to The Quilters’ Guild in 1993.
