I have been quite selective with the quilts I have chosen to show you, which has been very difficult, there were so many I found to be inspirational, all for very different reasons. Sometimes it was the subject matter I found intriguing, sometimes the close up texture, sometimes the sheer ingenuity, sometimes the colour and sometimes I could not analyse - it was a gut reaction. I decided I would try and limit it to 5 photos, mainly because of blogger limitations. However as usual blogger has other ideas and is limiting me to 4!!!!
Anita's quilt was part of the Husquarna Viking contest, and I suspect many of my visiors from "across the pond" have already seen this exhibition.
Bailey is a member of the Contemporary Quilters and her quilts are made from hand dyed felt.
There were a number of Kantha's in a seperate exhibition area, they were good to see.
Another selection of quilts I would highly recommend to be seen is by the SAQA group....WOW! I found real inspiration there .
Another quilter to keep your eye on is my chum Helen, some lovely inspiring work that she had entered this year.
This is a view of the Entrance/exit - certainly plenty of room to look at and admire the quilts on show. This is only a very small selection in this photo. Rest spaces were basic but very welcome when needing to take the weight off the feet.
