The Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

 Unfortunately there are no longer quilts on display at the V&A Museum as they are now stored at Blythe House and you need to request any quilts you would like to see. However there are still many good reasons to visit the V&A if you are interested in textiles.  They have a room set aside for the works of William Morris as well as many more displays of textiles in the form of embroidered clothing, tapestries, as well as beaded items.

 A beaded basket.

 The embroidered clothing pieces were beautiful.

I enjoyed my two hours here while Ray visited the Science Museum nearby.

Pity you couldn't see any quilts but the tapestries and embroidery are gorgeous.

I think the V & A is one of the best things about London and you certainly found some lovely things, shame about the quilts though

Oh my gosh they must have had very wide doorways!
