Constantinople Quilt Display This Saturday

Constantinople Quilt Display on
Saturday 6th June 10am till 3pm at
Berrima Patchwork: 21 Old Hume Highway, Berrima


Berrima Patchwork is excited to presenting all these projects from the book: Constantinople Quilts to be on display this day.
This is the only guaranteed opportunity to see ALL the projects from the book. Constantinople Quilts is the first book created by Tamsin Harvey for C&T Publishing. Tamsin will be on hand to sign copies of the book and to talk about the process of creating the projects, their inspiration and her trip to Turkey to photograph the projects and tiles.
This book features 8 different quilting projects which are inspired by Iznik Turkish Tiles from the Ottoman Empire. This book is unique as it includes photos tiles and ceramics that inspired these designs. In March last year Tamsin travelled to Istanbul to photograph the tiles and all the projects in the amazing historic setting of the "Old City" including the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia Museum and the RĂ¼stem Pasha Mosque.
