My latest YouTube videos feature beautiful Art Quilts and Stunning Embroidery from the Embroiderers’ Guild, SAQA Art Quilts, The Needles Excellency, Tilly Rose Vintage and The British Quilt & Stitch Village.
This years Festival of Quilts was bigger and better than ever.
This is a little mini diary of my own visit on Day One of the Show.
Share the hustle and bustle, wander around exhibitions & stalls and share my favourite quilts on display.
Picture the scene. It’s mid afternoon on day one of The Festival of Quilts. Visitors are gathering and waiting in eager anticipation for the unveiling of the winning quilts. A large cloth has been carefully draped over each piece hiding it from view. Eventually the cloths are removed, the cameras appear and there is a frenzy of quilters and photography.
Once the hustle and bustle of the day had died down, I popped back to see these beautiful quilts and started taking some photos.
I found the standard of work was very high this year; I particularly loved the pieces featuring hand quilting and applique.
