This is what greeted me as I walked through the door.
All these lovely quilted cushions were in a raffle, and a winner was picked each night of the festival -needless to say, I didn't win! LOL.
Still, all the money went to good causes.
These were on offer next..... But good girl that I am (not), I resisted. - Until the end.
These were quilted Christmas trees hanging on the wall.
Beautiful quilted bags and note book covers.
The detail on the quilts is amazing.
These are the little mice from the quilt below.
Each quilt had the persons name on it who made it, and a little blurb about what inspired the quilt, which I thought was really nice.
The Grandma quilt below was inspired by a trip to America!!
I loved these 3d quilted leaves..
Below was one of my favourite quilts.
Even though it's a 'winteryish' (is that a word?) scene, the fabrics used had lovely butterflies on them and summery flowers.. It really appealed to me..
One for the cat lovers.
This was a quilted piece of artwork for an exam.
Love the 3d bikini top.
At the end of your visit, you had to choose a favourite out of about the 150 items.
I chose the quilt below because I thought it was truly an heirloom quilt. -Totally inspiring.-
It celebrated the lives of a 'young' couple who had just reached their 50th wedding anniversary. All the photos that hed been imposed onto the fabric meant something to the couple. i.e, it had a picture of the place where they met, got married, their children and grand children, first house etc...
I just thought it was amazing, and came away with quilt envy..
So I had a lovely cup of tea, and a slice of coffee and walnut cake to help me get over it!
Have a great weekend. Take care. x
