The Victoria & Albert Museum has started posting  an on-line journal with 
the occasional textile article.  Here is one that  may be of  interest:


"Tales  from the Coilte," by Kathryn Berenson.  "Production of white 
quilted  furnishings existed in the Middle Ages throughout most of Europe and 
certainly  in France. Refined work with story-telling motifs is associated 
principally  with southern Italy, renowned examples being the fourteenth-century 
Tristan  quilts, which will be exhibited by the V&A in November, 2009, and 
at the  major Quilts exhibition from 20 March to 4 July 1010. This paper 
looks at the  cultural environment of the Tristan quilts, their precursors and 
the white  motif-laden confections that followed  them."
