War Widows Quilt on display at the National Army Museum

Quilt

“How will you be marking Remembrance Weekend in November?

If you are in London, you might like to visit the #WarWidowsQuilt at the National Army Museum, 10th-12th November.

The War Widows Quilt was made as part of The War Widows’ Stories, with the War Widows Association.

I worked with over 90 women from all over the UK, that powerfully told stories of love, loss and grief.

Admission to the museum is free, booking is not required.”
