Killerton House, Devon – Part Four – Quilts

I particularly liked the Quilt on display, so much so, that I am going to share with you the photo yet again!

There was simply something about this quilt that I enjoyed, so I was delighted to see when we got to the gift shop at the exit that there was a selection of jigsaw puzzles showing this quilt. How could I resist?

 Here the pieces are, simply tipped out of the box.

A few particular shapes, I love the little rabbit & the tree!

And here it is, the completed project. This was a 40 piece puzzle which cost £6. The bigger one with 250 pieces cost £25. From looking at the puzzle it is quality and well worth the money!

  1. Hi Claire, It would indeed make a great gift. The National Trust closes many of the houses for the winter for cleaning and restoration. The URL for Killerton is
    http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/killerton/

    I did though phone Wentworth's who advise me that they can not sell privately anything with the NT logo. The NT does have a shop, which might be worth having a look

    Hope that helps and you can locate one, failing that have you looked at eBay?

  2. Hi Julie, Does the National Trust have an online shop to purchase the jigsaw from? It would make a great gift.
    Thank you from Claire, Hampshire

    The quilt itself is beautiful. The puzzle is very fun. I especially enjoy that four of the pieces are non-typical puzzle shapes: the tree, bunny, leaf, and squirrel. They would be fun to display by themselves or even hang on a Christmas tree (if one likes that kind of ornament, which I do!).

    Thanks for sharing.
