Things We Do in Bed - a new exhibition curated by Tracy Chevalier (author of Girl with a Pearl Earring), features more than just tessellating hexagons; as well as featuring antique works of textile art the show includes an emotionally stirring quilt made predominantly by male prisoners, a lexically rousing ‘word search’ bedspread from contemporary textile artist Sara Impey, and a politically moving patchwork by the guerrilla-tactic crafter, Grayson Perry. Quilting just got quirky.
