Well day three at the Festival of Quilts is over, and I can honestly say it’s been amazing. I was going to blog at the end but Linda Kemshall has made me feel both inadequate and guilty as she has blogged whilst working at the show and she’s been in a gala fashion show, modelling the clothes she and Laura have made. They are beautiful and so well tailored, though they deny this.
My pictures are not brilliant, as they are taken in low light before the show starts, and my poor old camera doesn’t do low light that well [well I’m blaming it, not me of course.] Here is one of their outfits, featuring beautiful images of birds. Those girls can certainly draw, as well as paint, sew, design, etc, makes you sick really.There will be much better images on their blog, but I have a couple more I will post on Monday.
This is my daughter Chloe by her quilt, which I thought looked beautifully simple and poised, and got some really good remarks from the judges. She’s been helping me on my stand, a picture of which I will post asap.
And this is one of my friend Hilary Beattie’s quilts, which of course I love. It is beautifully made, and her two other quilts in other sections of the show were both Highly Commended; I’ll feature those soon.
