Hannah Hauxwell

Not many, I think maybe three in total and peeps on FB are saying she probably needed them to keep warm during the winters but the auctioneers say they appear unused so make your own mind up ... the quilt with most detail seems to be a stack and whack ???? (apologies if thats wrong) as the motif seems to be the same in each square.

Oh, that's interesting. They look lovely.

I hadn't realised she only died last year...don't remember reading about it.

Can we enlist you as a spy ...  :ninja:

Sadly it will probably not reflect their worth.
Last year I went to a textiles auction (Dukes in Dorchester) and there was a first prize winning group quilt from 2006/7 for sale. Not to my taste but beautifully made and it went for £50!!!

I think the HH name might add some value and a local museum might bid for one.

Funny that this should come up as I was talking about HH only the other day with a friend. I wasn't aware that she had only just passed away or relatively recently.

The tv programmes about this remarkable lady are available on youtube, if anyone wishes to watch them again or didn't see them originally.
