Festival of Quilts 2016

If there's still anyone out there reading this blog I'm truly sorry for my poor attendance here. However I thought that some of you might like to see some of the quilts which caught my eye at the Festival of Quilts yesterday. It's a huge show and very tiring to walk around the whole thing but there were some real beauties there to admire and some extremely clever quilters who displayed their work. Way out of my league! I can only stand in awe!

Most of my favourites were in the art quilt sections but this traditional hand-pieced hexagon quilt was just so beautiful.

Three quilts with trees as their subject

 A deconstructed hexagon quilt!

 Lots of colourful spirals on this one

This quilt (above) was called sunrise ...

 and this one is sunset

A colourful and cleverly pieced barcode

 Lovely little patches and scraps of embroidery joined together for this wallhanging.

This one is by the very talented Cas Holmes

And last, but not least, two extremely large and beautifully embroidered eyes - one open and one closed.

It was a tiring but very inspiring day!
