After a really busy few days at The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham
It was packed!
People were spending money like there was no tomorrow.
It was great!
I spent most of the time helping friends from New Zealand on their stand. They have the most beautiful selection of patterns for making quilts for children.
But... I was disappointed at the lack of traditional pieced quilts that had been entered and on display, compared to the "art" style quilts.
It's not that I don't appreciate the work that goes into any piece, but I really do wonder "Why?" at some of the entries.
I didn't take pics of those
Here is a selection of some that caught my eye
This one was very effective
Simple, but lovely
Philipa Naylor won the Traditional category
This was my favourite
The rest - well - maybe you saw them for yourself.
Anyway - that's all for another year and a quick recovery before the next exhibition - a MUCH smaller one - at the beginning of September in the village.
The quilt blocks that I started in the previous post are all done and are ready to join together but I have more important things on my mind...
Tomorrow I am of to catch up on MANY hugs and kisses from this little squidgy thing, who has been in France for three weeks and MUST be missing me!!
