Yesterday I took my first trip to a quilt show, The Scottish Quilt Championships at Ingleston, just by Edinburgh Airport. And this is what I came home with!
But look who came with me...Lynz from Domestic Light and Magic!
When we met up in the summer we made a plan to attend this show together. Lynz is standing in front of one of our favourite quilts from the show, 'Glorious Autumn' by Frieda Oxenham. It is made of beautiful batiks with extra beads.
Here are some more that caught our eye.
I loved this allotment themed quilt. Here is a close-up. The seed packets are amazing, the quilter must have copied them on to fabric, very effective.
Overall I think we were both impressed with the standard of work and by the huge amount of fabric etc. on offer. And apparently this was just a small show in comparison with some of the others! I was exhausted by the time we got home and had to go for a lie down, just too much quilty excitement!
It was really great to have a fun 'quilt friend' to go with. Thanks so much for coming with me Lynz! Check out Lynz's blog for some more great quilts (better photos and with proper credits...).
