Festival of Quilts 2011

Yesterday Christopher and I went to the Festival of Quilts, held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, about a three hour drive away. We both thoroughly enjoyed looking at the display of quilts, some of which were stunning, some of which should never have been displayed (in our opinion, that is). I wandered around all of the booths, while Christopher was having a coffee, but as usual was confused by the amount of choice and bought very little. And the queues put me off buying some cheap fabric and wadding that I would have liked.

But then Christopher came around with me, and ended up buying me my Christmas present, which I'll show you next time I post.

Here's a slideshow of the photographs I took; some worked well, others were a bit blurry, but I've included them anyway.

What a lovely collection of quilts. So few of them traditional! I'm always flustered at the booths as well and overwhelmed as to what to buy.

Thank you for sharing your photos with us. It was lovely to see such a variety of quilts.

Absolutely spectacular. I don't see how a judge can choose a "Best in the Show." They are all the Best. Wow! I'm in complete awe. You took amazing photos!
