Last weekend I was in Birmingham at the Festival of Quilts. If you’ve never been there, you’re really missing something. It’s a wonderful show with so many beautiful quilts. Four days are never enough for me to see it all and talk to all the friends you haven’t seen for a year. Oh, and don’t forget the shopping… If you’ve entered a quilt of your own, it’s even more fun, you can listen to what people are saying about it and maybe even win a prize, which is what happened to me this year. The quilt I had entered into the Quilter’s Guild challenge won a European Award.
