Day 297 October 25th
After a lovely circular walk around Burford this morning , visited Chastleton House this afternoon. Lots of stitchy goodness from 18th century there. This picture shows a bed quilt which  apparently took 15 years to make in 1750s. The stitches looked as if they had been done on a machine. Perhaps it was back stitched?
