eye candy from two quilt shows
I am just going to share one more quilt with you from the festival of quilts that was made by my dear friend Cheryl who not only is a quilter but also has a degree in theatre costume design and makes wonderful wedding dresses. Cheryl has just completed her city & guilds in patchwork and is about to start the diploma course at Missenden , her tutor is Barbara Weeks. Her inspiration came from the Virginia Creeper that grows in her garden. All the fabric was dyed by Cheryl
Now onto Harrogate quilt show, this is the winner of the pieced section and also won the award as favourite of one of the judges and a merit from the judges. I am privileged to also know the lady who made this. Liz is a member of the Yorkshire Modern Quilters Guild that I also belong to and this quilt was made to celebrate the tour de France that started here in Yorkshire
here are a few more of my favourites from the show
