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!


  1. oh my, the whole show must have been amazing if these pics are anything to go by... the *work* that goes into each of these pieces is incredible. awesome pics - thanks for sharing! xx

  2. oooooo i really like the aerial as well! they are all beautiful, but blocks of color... sigh!

  3. Wow, these are amazing, liking the cakes most.

  4. I'd forgotten this was on - I really must try to go next year - I haven't managed to for ages. I really love the piece with the tree - absolutely beautiful!
