Uttoxeter Quilt Show

Hello all.
Just wanted to show a few images from my day out at the Uttoxeter Quilt Show.  I had a really nice day with a couple of the girls from Market Bosworth Quilters.
So here are my purchases - I think I was quite restrained.
Firstly a book called 'How to be Creative in Textile Art' by Julia Triston and Rachel Lombard.  I'm very impressed with it and hope I'll work my through it.
I also bought some lovely fabrics from Images of Egypt (plain fabrics) and Batiks n Beads (batiks surprisingly).  I really like these - lets see what happens with them.
 I also wanted to share some of the quilts I saw there.  
When I was on holiday I bought some beautiful daffodils and these reminded me of them. 
 Below is an awful photo of a great quilt.  Made by one of the girls in Market Bosworth Quilters - it really isn't her usual style.  Very abstract.
 Circles - you can never go wrong.
 And here's another one by one of the girls in Market Bosworth Quilters.  I even managed to make one of these blocks with the curves.  No where near as impressive as these.
Oh and there was a lady there selling some great jewellery - Sticks and Stones.  have a look, very reasonably priced.
