Neatly tapping in to the vogue for all things crafty, the V&A’s exhibition for next spring focuses on quilts, something I suspect sounds a bit dull on paper but is actually a very nice experience to see. And the V&A’s ever-brilliant shop will be launching some limited-edition archive fabrics to tie-in: they’re available in one-metre pieces or less, I suppose to encourage people to get quilting. Nature-inspired, they range from the very 1930s-looking ‘Petals’ to a blousy rose design and an eastern-ish Ikat print. Er, I just realised the exhibition’s not ’til next March, so consider this a stupidly early heads-up.
