Earlier today I went and visited a quit show at Alresford Village hall run by the Essex and Suffolk Quilters group. Oh how I wish I had the skill, time and patience to create beautiful quilts like these.
Brickworks – Mary MacIntosh
It always surprises me how much I’m attracted to the colours in quilts. This one is actually three quilts designed to hang together.
Jungle Fever by Sheila Frankland
This one caught my eye in part because of the beautiful batik fabrics. I have a pile of similar fabrics waiting to be cut up and pieced together. I doubt I’ll make such a good job of it but I’ll try.
Ben’s Puppy Quilt – Jan Moore
As soon as I saw this quilt I started to smile. I recognised it from Lynette Andersons ‘It’s Quilting Cats and Dogs’ book. I’m now even more convinced I should have a go at this quilt after seeing this beauty.
Asian Charms – Jean Wife
One of the reasons for visiting the show was for inspiration on patterns to use with some of the fabrics in my stash. I really love the tiny black borders round the individual pieces of fabric . I did have a good look and it was beautifully done.
My Family – A Wall Hanging by Kim Williams
I loved this one as well. The imagery is right up my street and the colours beautiful. Oh how I wish I could create something like this for my wall. Not that I have any room on my walls given how many images I already have up there, but I can dream.
I’ll leave you now with some detailing from the ‘My Family’ quilt which I kept going back to. A quilted dragon. What could be more perfect for me.
