Bletchley Park Quilt

Finally finished my  quilt for Bletchley Park.  It is based on my mother’s service record in the WRENS during the Second World War. She worked at Eastcote in London which was an outstation of Bletchley Park.  Her job was to either feed code into a bombe or take the results and see if they made any sense.

Her service record has been paper laminated as the main part of the quilt. Her photos have been transferred using TAP onto fabric rusted and immersed into soda ash which gives an organic design. The quilt has been pieced, machine quilted and free motion stitched.

The quilt goes to Bletchley today and will eventually have pride of place at home.
