Festival of Quilts!

I went.. did you?

Thursday came alarm set for 4am ready to be out by 5am… (yes I’m mad but it was my last day of annual leave so Cornwall to Birmingham and back in a day). Think I’m just about recovered.. what ten hours of driving and a whole day of walking do to you 🙂

Met up with the lovely Rosie and we had a fab time browsing the stalls oohing and aahing over the quilts, some of my faves and those that stood out.

Kerry’s quilt is in there.. can you spot it?

I also met up with some of the lovely ladies and Katy from the Popular Patchwork forum and did a gift swap. Finished my gift just after ten pm wednesday night but isn’t it so cute!

And this is what was gifted to me. A crochet flower brooch. Not really me at all but sure I find a use for it eventually…….

This weekend I’ve been procrastinating from playmat making and did these. Complete numpty.. I forget to change the stitch settings from when I was quilting so if you pull too hard they’ll fall apart. But once these babies are quilted they should be fine!

  3. Wow that is a very long way to go in a day, you must have been shattered. Hope it was worth it. I didn’t go this year as I’d only spend a fortune on fabric and can’t afford to do so at the moment. Hopefully next year… 🙂
