Passion for quilting

Festival of Quilts 2012

The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham was once again an incredible experience. So many beautiful quilts, so many wonderful people, so much interesting new quilt stuff. You’re ready to drop after four days but it still never seems enough. If you’ve never been, put it on your calendar, August 8-11, 2013!

I sent two of my quilts to the competition. My threadpainted doors to the Pictorial Quilts:

 

Welcome…?

and a new quilt, ‘A thing of beauty…’, to the Quilters’ Guild Challenge:

A thing of beauty…

The theme of the challenge was: Britain, what it means to me. The inspiration comes from English language and literature. I used several of my favourite poems. It has a needlefelted background with heavy machine stitching, hand stitching, poems printed on silk, and beading.

The quilts didn’t win any prizes but there were some nice comments from the judges and visitors.
