Festival of Quilts, birmingham

Another packed programme as usual. I had only one day here but concentrated on the quilts because I do NOT need more fabric. They were a lovely lot! The overall winner was stunning but I do find it sad that not many winners were hand quilted. I can't imagine sleeping under a closely stitched quilt by machine. They are so not cuddly.
Spent an hour or so on the quilters guild tombola tote bag stand. This was being run by Region 7 this year and we hope to raise well over £400. Well done to Sheila our chair and her team for some superb organisational skills.

Some of the wonderful quilts on show!
