Festival of Quilts

As I mentioned in my last post I was off to the Festival of Quilt, It is a 4 day show at the NEC in Birmingham this year I went on the Friday, which I think was a good day to visit as it wasn't too crowded, My Hubby did the driving, takes about 2 1/2 hrs to get there but we where there before it opened. I bumped into two Twin Sister I knew in the queue they had come for all four days and both brought an empty suite case each!!
The stash I bought, I stuck to my list!!
I loved the center of this Quilt as it was ribbon embroidery.

The detail on this quilt was amazing as you can see from the Maori.

This is just a panel from the Winning Quilt alot of the flowers where in 3D.
I thought these pegs where great.
I always come back very inspired but nothing seems to happen, I have all the squares for a sampler Quilt which I did on a course learning different techniques, I just need to stitch them together.

Great pictures, Jayne. I think the quilt with the pegs is quite simply stunning. I would really like to see it in person.
