The Festival of Quilts

We had a brilliant time at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC.  We were there for 2 days and one night, and when I got back I felt like I'd been gone a week... it was so good to take a breather from the harvest.  And my hotel room was not overlooking the air conditioning machinery so I couldn't grumble!

I'll show some pics of my favourite quilts, and try to label them right....

This one won the Bernina award -it's by Joy Savage and was made of tiny log cabins - it contains over 40,000 pieces.  Oh, and before you say she had too much time on her hands, she did it whilst doing her PGCE!

I liked the colours in this one by Kirsti Hovland in Norway - it's called 'The Milky Way - Stars Wondering

I think this one is by Sue Bibby, it was in the Miniature Quilt section.
This was by Kyoko Yamauchi
Her applique was stunning

Here are some I loved but can't say who made them

That's all for now.....but I'll put some more up tomorrow....


  1. Love that 3D effect one with the squares and the Milky Way one.

  2. Actually, I think the 3D affect is camera shake!

  3. Glad you enjoyed your hotel room this time. The quilts are fantastic. I especially like the kyoko one.
