Malvern quilt show

I am now home following my few days in London,     re the quilt show,  unfortunately I woke at 3.30am with a bad migraine which did not shift and led to violent sickness but by 9.30 we left for Malvern,  I slept all the way in the car and napped throughout the  day too but fortunately Cheryl took photos which we transferred to a memory stick for me to bring home.  Did not even manage to see the quilts properly but will share a few photos with you today.


I think most of you know I am a Jennie Rayment fan and this was based on her designs, being off white it does not show up very well.



beautiful piecing on this one


so colourful,   this was very popular with the visitors



  I loved this one if you click on the photo you should get a better clearer picture    hopefully


lots to see and admire in this one

oh wow, just discovered how to move the picture and write by the side of it!!    This is one of my favourites.

















will post a few more photos tomorrow.

I have made 3 more blocks .

well it might have just been a one off ,  managed to move this to the side but could not write  the text next to it!!  It has now moved back to the centre!!   This is the churn dash block  (6) done for the Little bunny challenge


This block    celtic cross was on the blog simply pieced  that Janet has to celebrate a year of blogging,  this is the biggest block I have made, measures 16.5"


This is off to America to Anna who has requested 12" blocks in pink to make into quilts to raise money towards her Mother in law`s treatment for cancer

It was most unfortunate that you should suffer so from migrane, and at the time of a much looked forward even as well.
You are fortunate to have a dear friend in Cheryl who drove and took photos for you.
The quilts are beautiful and so are your new blocks.

What a shame you got the migraine, Margaret. From one sufferer to another you have my complete sympathies. Some of those quilts look very intricate and truly amazing. Your piecing of the blocks is coming along really well.
