The Festival of Quilts 2014 – Part Two – Traditional Quilts

There are lots of categories of quilts at the Festival of Quilts but the Traditional Quilts is one of my favourites.

Wandering around the Show was wonderful – the textile creations were a feast for the eye. The quilts entered for competition were everything from ‘My first Quilt’ to Pictorial and Art quilts.
