Festival of quilts NEC Birmingham

Spent a lovely day with friends last week at the NEC absorbing pattern and colour and fabric and ideas. Great. If there was one quilt that hit all the buttons for me it was this miniature quilt below. It has given me colour inspiration for a quilt I'm about to embark on for my nephew and his fiancées wedding quilt
I also bought a 'kit' for heavens sake!! By a great maker of lovely things...... Janet Clare. I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday making it and I'm so chuffed. I'll show you that in my next blog so keep watching.....

Vintage quilt

So this is the picture of my bargain bagged recently on a trip to Amersham. It's very frayed but I love it to bits for that. I'm guessing it's post ww2. A bargain at £20 don't you think?
