|Bed-hangings by Anna Margaretta Brereton, c.1801-5|
The story is that between 1801-5, whilst in mourning following the sudden death of her eldest son, this lady immersed herself in creating this extraordinarily beautiful counterpane and bed hangings.

I do find it quite therapeutic, just like she did.
|Fired once and now glazed and ready for second firing|

But for now, these are the four quilt block patterns to choose from and three lucky winners of our Homewares Giveaway have to do just that!
