For the first time since it started I was not on duty and took the opportunity to wander round snapping pics of quilts, catching up with people (sometimes literally bumping into them!) and shopping – what a great day.

Here are a few quilts that caught my attention (other than those in the winning gallery of course! which we have posted on our Facebook page – click here)

An entry from Kate Crossley (do you remember her stunning clock from a previous year?)

A detail of the winning quilt’s stitching – amazing; however in the early years this would have been done by hand – no other comment other than to say rather than taking weeks that would have taken years.

and a couple of modern quilts that I could have taken home – (shame about the creases on one which didn’t really show as badly at the event!)
