More from the Festival of Quilts

Hi all,
I've been busy finishing off some bits and bobs, you know projects not far off being finished after a class, zips in cushions that were bursting etc.  I have some more photos to show you from the show that I really liked. I hope you like them too.










Still some more to follow...

Festival of Quilts 2014 (part one of many...)

Hello all.
So - I went to the FoQ yesterday and had a really good time.  As usual I've taken loads of phtotos and will blog them bit by bit.  So here are the first lot.
Art Textiles: Made in Britain are exhibiting at FoQ with the theme of Identity. As part of this they decided to make mood boards, which I think really sum up each of the artists.











And I love this piece by Hilary Beattie.  More to follow...
