These quilts, which will be 40ft long x 7ft high in total, and double sided were made to celebrate the 800 years since the signing of Magna Carta. There is 4 Medieval and 4 Contemporary Quilts, and you can learn about the inspiration and some of the how-we-did- it from Paula Doyle, Alison Garner and the other ladies of the Magna Carta Quilt Association.
You can learn about the encaustic tiles each of which represents a letter of the alphabet and which surround the quilt, and which will have a message from the 39th Clause of Magna Carta which deals with human rights.
Several of the blocks, which were still a work in progress when this video was recorded were presented by Alsion.
Their Facebook page is under Magna Carta Quilt Association and their Twitter thingy is @MagnaCartaQuilt.
You can find some information about sponsorship in their website.
For more information about the actual tiles, these were made by Westfield Laser Design.
