Festival of Quilts
"To see quilts?" asked the puzzled taxi driver taking me to the station so that I could catch a train to the NEC Birmingham.
Neither my explanation of what I was off to see nor the photos I've returned with do it justice!
It was a tiring day ........
... of stroking gorgeous fabrics, peering at intricate stitch-work on beautiful quilts, dreaming of having the time to commit to sewing and gawping at Amy Butler's diamond rings.
Somehow, I trekked all the way to Birmingham yet ended up only buying fabric from two exhibitors whose shops I visit regularly anyway!
The Robert Kaufman icecream print "Confections"and the mushroom print "My Happy Garden" by Cloud 9 Fabrics were both from The Eternal Maker and the pink flowers from Fabric Galore . All are destined to become nightwear of some sort, providing that time dream comes true.
