Today I went to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC. For the past couple of years I have heard how good it is, but have never had chance to go. So this year, in a bit of a last minute decision I decided to go and persuaded Nics notebook to come with me. I thought I would share just a select few of the quilts we looked at. There were so many, all equally beautiful and awe inspiring. You could really just spend a day looking at the quilts, never mind looking at all the lovely stalls!
I took cash with me in the hope to limit my spending, however I did end up using my card a few times! Here are some of the beautiful things I bought with links to where I got them from.
A signed Kaffe Fassett book
Fabrics from The eternal maker
A lovely patchwork felt kit from Madeleine Millington
A cute kit to make a felt dog
Some gorgeous liberty fabric from Alice Caroline
The most beautiful panels from a French stall
A cute free machine drawing on a scrap of fabric, from Janet Clare
And my most favourite
A quilt kit from Daisy Chain Designs
I hope you get time to visit the links I have mentioned as there really are some fab artists out there. The best thing about today is that have found some really unusual and quirky designers and shops which I will definitely be using in the future.
