The Festival of quilts

The tent makers of Cairo had an exhibition it was amazing to see them at work.
The winning quilt of the pictorial section.
The Meercat quilt winner of the group section. The group where none other than 8 members of Chester P and Q's.
Winner of the Contemporary quilt section and best in show.
I had an amazing two days at the festival of quilts despite the horrible cold. Here are just a few photos of  some of my favorite pieces in the show. I thought I took lots of photos but in reality I hardly took any, to busy being in awe. I met up with lots of friends I even bumped into my friend Janet (Jan's musings) who lives in Northampton and it was so lovely to see her. The whole weekend was such a tonic and whilst I am still not feeling 100% health wise, it certainly gave my mojo a nudge in the right direction.

Thanks Susan, you did too, I cannot believe it has been two years I think since we first met at the show. How time flies. Maybe next time we can have longer together.
