A Medieval Coat of Arms by Kay W.

This was a challenge!  Then I realised that all the knights engaging in mortal combat had coats of arms on their chests.  So I researched our family's coat of arms and found this version.  It would be nice to think that in times gone by a knight of the realm fought with distinction under this banner!

Knight Protection - Helen

My research of Medieval shields lead to an amazing collection of images and information including types, construction, symbols of recognition, colours and designs of shields. Hope you enjoy your quilts, Mary.

A Medieval Knight from Lynn

"Medieval" conjured up pictures of colourful costumes and knights, and when I found the chain mail fabric (coloured with my grey fabric pen), I had to create a knight for defending damsels in distress.
Enjoy your medieval masterpieces, Mary.
Best wishes from Lynn.
