more eye candy

As promised here are some more photos of the Malvern quilt show.  This is the 3rd attempt to load them,  the first I made a mistake  and deleted it, the second one I thought I had saved whilst I had some breakfast but if I had saved it I can not find it now so here goes,   3rd time lucky.
    I think I am right in saying this first quilt came overall second in the competition. This is one of the ones I like best.  I seem to be drawn to the applique ones at the moment but want to make a patchwork block one first.




the next one is all hexagons which I did not realise until I got up close they are easily seen on the light fabric but the dark mislead me.

Now these are just a selection of some of the others on display.

After having tried to sew a few simple 6" quilt blocks I have a new appreciation for the tedious amount of time and work that quilting involves. These are amazing. Thank you for sharing such beauty.

It's so nice to see these photos, Margaret. I made a small quilt once, and I found out just how much work goes into the mechanics of it. I can't imagine how much more effort and time it takes to create one with such intricate designs.Thanks.

phenomenal - still amazes me how hands can work such loveliness with fabric and thread - the colors and shapes are beautiful - I particularly like the one with the birds - delightful :)
