A group of quilters from the Esk Valley has handed over one of its creations which took two years to create.

The Heather Quilters based in Glaisdale presented the quilt to Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole, Kirkbymoorside and it has now gone on permanent display within the attraction’s Victorian White Cottage.

The group has 35 quilters including members from the surrounding villages too and their aim is to produce works of art and family heirlooms for others to enjoy.

It meets fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons in the Robinson Institute from autumn to early summer and raises funds for local charities and donates quilts to hospices.
