Festival of Quilts

Last weekend was the Festival of Quilts at the NEC.  It is the best craft related show at the NEC each year.  I was very fortunate to win 2 free tickets from Storage4Crafts, one of which I gave to a friend.  Then after the Show opened I was offered another free ticket in return for sitting on The Granary Studio stand for a couple of hours.

As a consequence I went on Friday afternoon and again on Sunday.   Here are the quilts that caught my eye.  You may notice a couple of themes!

  1. LOVE your selection Bernice. I saw only a few of those and often couldn't get near enough to take photos. I loved the show too. My selection is on my blog.
