The story of Tristan and Isolde, a classic tale of love and deception, inspired one of the oldest surviving quilts.  The two quilts depicting this story appear to once have been one large tapestry possibly used as a wall hanging. But it has survived today as two quilts that were probably bedcovers. The first resides in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London while the other is in the Bargello Museum in Florence. It was made in Sicily around 1400.

Stitches: the 2 most common are running stitch & back stitch. Don't worry about size; concentrate on uniformity. W/time, your stitches will get smaller. There are several books available today that discuss nothing but how to perfect your quilt stitch. Two to look for are Hand Quilting by Alex Anderson and That Perfect Stitch by Roxanne McElroy.
