Joe the Quilter

For those of you who might have heard the story of Joe the Quilter, the British quilt stamper who was murdered for his quilt money in 1826. Here are some pictures of his cottage which was rebuilt at Beamish, an open air museum not far from where I live. The heather rush roof was particularly beautiful.Beamish also have examples of his beautiful whole cloth quilt designs in their stores. Here is a link to the whole story
