What A Show!

If you haven't made it to the Little Coxwell Quilters' exhibition in Steventon yet, you must go tomorrow.

I called in today, in between walking and exercising dogs, and it is wonderful.

How a little group of 12 quilters could produce this amount of work is astounding.  Here are some of my favourite pieces:

Our own Lynne Johnson's Mountmellick, adapted from Di Ford's pattern

Lynne's felt and tweed White House hanging
Catriona Karney had done a lot of work with felt which I really liked:

as well as her beautiful quilts.  This is a block from 'Duck Egg Quilt' by Catriona - a Di Ford Pattern
I thought this little Flower Garden designed by Di Ford and made by Mary Cotton was really pretty.

And then a surprise from Lynne:

'St Neots' - not her usual colours but I absolutely loved it!

Above is a block from 'My Blue Heaven' by Mavis Christer - I liked the way she had quilted it.

A traditional Pinwheel Quilt beautifully made by Julia Edmonds:

An amazing Dear Jane Civil War quilt made by Mavis Christer, in beautiful Liberty fabrics
 - so much work in every little square:

Fantastic Lynne Edwards' Baston Creek Medallion made by Jenny Garlick:
and I loved Jenny's Lynnette Anderson Flower Spool quilt:
Catriona's Basket Weave centre quilt and some stunning bags she has made:
and a table of ongoing projects:
and finally, what we all like to see, quilts which have been passed down through the generations:
So many beautiful quilts that were so inspiring, and displayed beautifully.  I would like to put up photos of all them - but since there were more than 80 quilts alone, this is the best I can do!
What a show!
