Festival of Quilts

Last weekend I went to the Festival of Quilts.  I am very fortunate that the show is only a 25 minute bus ride away.  I have a bus pass so the journey is free and I don't have to pay the extortionate amount that is charged for parking.   I was also very fortunate to be given a ticket for the show in return for an hour's stewarding on Leah Higgin's gallery.  Surrounded by breakdown printing!!

I spent much longer at the show than I would normally and I think I still managed to miss bits because photos come up on my Facebook newsfeed of textiles I don't remember seeing.  In this post you will only see photos of things that caught my eye.
Connecting threads, fading borders by Annelies Ghyselen

Plot 105: 52 weeks by Alice Fox

Several pieces by Eszter Bornemisza

I think this piece may have been the most popular exhibit in the show.  It's certainly the one I've see most on my Facebook newsfeed.
