Festival Of Quilts

Yesterday Neil and I went to the festival of quilts and we had a lovely day. There was some stunning quilts on display.

The Meerkats quilt was a group effort, such fun.

A lot of you probably recognise the next quilt, it's Pams doesn't it look fabulous hanging there.

A quilt show wouldn't be a show with out some poppies would it?

More poppies because they are my favourite.

This is Julie's quilt.

This astonishing piece won the best amateur quilt prize - some amateur! The quilt is quite exceptional, Neil says it's the best in show, if not ever!

Next is Jenny's quilt. Jenny doesn't have a blog, the photo's on the quilt are of her family and I can truthfully say that blood sweat and tears went into the making of this quilt, sadly Jenny's father passed away before it was finished.

I'm going back to the festival on Sunday with a group of friends and I'm hoping it won't be quite as busy. If your making the trip then enjoy your day you won't be disappointed.

I loved that first quilt but couldn't get near enough for a photo.

The Meerkats quilt was great fun and I can't believe I missed both you and Pam's quilt. What planet was I on!
