I went to the first day of Festival of Quilts at the NEC yesterday, it was absolutely heaving! Hopefully that's good news for the traders. The quilts on show were amazing, the standard this year is very high and if you can go and have a look, do, it's well worth it.
I didn't take many pictures because I've found in the past that I'm just taking pictures and not looking at the quilts, but I did snap a couple that caught my eye. The purple one was made by a lady in our quilt group. The other two I particularly liked, but didn't photograph, were Philippa Naylor's wholecloth quilt and Ferret's Phoenix Rising, both that I had the honour of hanging.
