Husb took me to two quilt shows taday. I was TOTALLY AWESTRUCK and LOVED IT! The first was in Worcester called the 'Three Pears Quilters Exhibition'. My first impression was amazement at all the variety, colour and skill on show.
I also saw some heritage English quilts, hand-pieced loads of tiny hexagons.
There was an incredible see-through quilt, inspired by a stained-glass-window. The quilter explained how she built up layers to subtley change the colour. The photo isn't very good as it doesn't show all the colour and shape around the circular window, but you get the idea.
Then we went to the 'Malvern Quilt Festival' visit the website here . Again, really good. I loved the journal quilts which were A4 sized each month and were incredibly varied and different. So many layers and embellishments on some of them too.
The quilt below was created for blind and partially sighted people and although we couldn't touch it was textured and had sounds on it too.
There were lots of Fuschia quilts for a competition.. truly lovely.
And a Pansy quilt (added in for my Mum!)
I've been away for a few days visiting my family, hoping to catch up and tell about half-term asap.
