Festival of Quilts Part One

Last weekend was the Festival of Quilts at Birmingham and look who I meet up with again- Virginia - Sorry we seem a bit streaky not sure what has happened here. I deleted the previous one as we were completely green.

I also bumped into Shirley Slow off the mark I didn't get anyone to take a photo of us and of course I meet up with PIC Sue but no photo of her either.
Lots of lovely quilts so here goes with some of my favourites.
I can't tell you who's they are as you have to have a catalouge so see that sort of detail.

Nice Dear Jane

Great Hexagon

Lovely Red and White Applique

Nice Hawaian

More to follow in a few days.
P.S. have just found out through Shirley's blog that the above one is from Cowslip Workshops. I promise you I didn't know. Quilting was amazing on it.  Love it Team Cowslip. 


  1. it is always so nice to see all the quilts at a show isn't it - nice you ran into someone you knew!

  2. These are all so gorgeous.....and I'm crazy for that red and white applique quilt! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Sue, these are gorgeous! Loving that red, white, and blue one with the heart border ~ very striking!

  4. I don't get to see very much applique at the few shows I attend. There are some real beauties here, not only the applique work, but also the pieced ones. Thanks for sharing them with us. This looks like an impressive show. Looking forward to seeing the next group.

  5. The first red and white applique quilt you show is my favorite. I always think a red and white quilt is very striking.

  6. Looks like you two are having a wonderful time!! LOVE that red and white appliqué!! It's to die for!!
    Really must brush up on my appliqué skills.

  7. It was lovely to just bump into you on Thursday, would have loved more time. The last quilt you showed is the Cowslip Quilt. Several you showed are ones that I took also. There are some very talented people out there.
