quilt show photos

Finally I have pulled myself together and I am sharing some photos of the Harrogate quilt show with you all.  There have been quite a few of the festival of quilts show so not planning to add any unless requested to do so.



these are my favourites from the applique ones,  the first one was the overall winner, I was lucky to meet the lady who stitched it and she was interesting to listen to how she did the quilt. I do like the applique ones and will one day try and do a small, very small one



A selection of the tradition block patchwork,  I am really drawn to the ones that use lots of different sizes in their blocks,  I plan to one day have a go at one of these  notice the word plan!

 such skill here I love a quilt that is pictorial,    the face when seen at the show did not strike me as being a face rather two horses on their hind legs but when looked at through the camera a very clear face appeared,  so very clever.


a couple of cushions and a lovely miniature in the boutis technique,   have not tried this but there were a few quilts done in this way

I also took quite a few photos of quilts done by Ferret a quilter from London, will post about them another day they need to go on indiividually

Nice to go to an 'online show'. The appliqué quilts are really nice, the winning one looks like a William Morris style quilt of Michelle Hill's pattern.
I agree with you that the mixed sized block quilts are interesting, so much to look at.
I am glad to see my friend Jacquie Harvey's cushion - her work is always so feminine and delicate.
Looking forward to the Ferret post. That's another master quilter!

How fun. It's always interesting to see what others are doing. Also, I could actually see the pictures this time. For some reason, the internet likes to just show me the words and not the pictures they go with. I might try to see those last blocks you did since the computer is in a good mood.
Smiles,

Amazing quilts with sew very much inspiration. I could never be a judge as I love them all. However that little white one has won me over with its intricate shell edging. Thank you for sharing these Margaret. Blissfully Creative...

Thanks for sharing the pictures of some amazing quilts Margaret.Quilted Scenery is very pretty but I guess we need lots of patience and skills to do one.
I have done only a small cushion cover with bouts technique,have to try a bigger one and it's in my to-do list for a long time.
