Festival of Quilts 2011

Spent a whole day yesterday gazing in awe at the amazing talent on display at the NEC. Fabulous art quilts, beautifully executed traditional quilting and sewing, and gorgeous colours. Not to mention all the fabric, threads, dyes, block prints, equipment and demonstrations. It was great to meet such inspirational and generous people like Maggie Grey, Jamie Maldon of Colouricious and Ineke Berlyn, and Ruth Issett, to mention but a few folk who give of their time and knowledge so freely. A truly inspiring day!
