The Festival of Quilts 2014 - Part Six - A Christmas Treat

This is a final treat for you from The Festival of Quilts.
This Twelve Days of Christmas Quilt - "Twelve Quilters Quilting" by Celtic Quilters - is a bit of fun and captures the character of each maker - each quilter made their own block, and then faggot-ed them together to make the final piece.... enjoy.

The Festival of Quilts 2014 - Part Five - Winners in each Category

At The Festival of Quilts,  I made a decision to check out all the competition quilts first and leave viewing the prize winners until the very end of the day (the winners pieces were overwhelmed with crowds during the afternoon). Having seen all the entries, it was clear to see why each of the winners had been chosen. Here they are complete with category and maker's details - Enjoy.
