Festival of Quilts 2014


So went to the Festival of Quilts on the opening day, Thursday, and wow what a day,  the festival seemed bigger and even better than last year.  The quilts were beyond awesome and just so many delightful goodies on sale I had trouble keeping my plastic in the purse!!

We arrived about midday and walked our feet off til it closed at 5.30pm and there were still areas off the show I didn't see, I think next year I'll book in to a hotel and take 2 days. Anyhow I did manage to get just the right fabric for my quilt commission and I got to play on a couple of long arm quilting machines.  Guess what has just gone right to the top of my wish list!!

Here are a few of my favourite quilts unfortunately in my excitement I forgot to note the numbers so now can't find the name or maker, many apologies but I really was a kid in a sweet shop and out of control!!!


Just wanted to wander in through this gate.


                           


                            

The quilter had used some brilliant silky silver  thread to depict the rain - awesome!

                            

Loved these houses.
