Festival Of Quilts

Spent Saturday at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham with Thea. So inspiring and exhausting! Just thought you might like to see a few of the pieces which caught my eye.
I'm afraid I can't tell you who created a lot of these as you have to buy a catalogue to find out and I chose to spend my £6 on some fabric instead.

 
I do love Alicia Merrett's work and especially this aerial quilt - a passion of mine as you probably know!

There was so much beautiful work there and now I'm itching to start making quilts again. If only I had more energy and a few more hours in the day I might get half the projects I dream up actually realised!
