 During this week's flying visit to London I managed a quick look in the V&A museum and found the Tristan quilt on display (room 9 in the Medieval section).  It's difficult to photograph through the highly reflective glass but the quilting is nevertheless a joy to behold!
 This huge bed cover was made in the late 14th. century and depicts episodes of the adventures of Tristan, one of the heroes of medieval romance literature.
