Quilt Show

DH and I went to a little, local quilt show today, held in the Village Hall in Westleton, Suffolk. Entry £2.00 in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.


Well, I say DH went but really he just drove me there and only came in to get a cup of coffee and a piece of cake (he loved the date & walnut cake by the way, ladies).



He did have a little look around and saw a few quilts he liked. He seems to have a preference for "pictorial" designs using appliqué and decorative stitching.




I quite like this one - I love the bead "water droplets".




But my favourites are always the "block" quilts - and stars are a particular favourite.

Even a simple "Nine Patch" can be very effective. This one was made by an 11-year-old girl (with a little help from Mum) as a cuddle quilt for a friend undergoing treatment for cancer.

All in all, a very nice show.

    Hi, jmk...I see you are a quilter. You might want to check out my blog: www.joycelivingston.blogspot.com Yesterday, I began posting a quilt block a day, and will be posting them daily for the next several weeks. Also, you might pass this word on to others. Up until I began to be published in inspirational romance fiction, I traveled the country lecturing and teaching on quilting, and I've had numerous articles in quilting and craft magazines. By the way, I love your pics. PRETTY!
