And there's more.....

Maggi and I had a great day at the Festival of Quilts on Saturday - the time flew by and I wondered if I would get to see everything, but we did really well and even managed to meet up with Julie and Angela for lunch and a natter.
If you visit Julie's and Maggi's blog you'll see a selection of beautiful quilts.........here are some of my favourites:

 Frances Pickering kindly posed for a photo and signed the book I bought from her.


And finally something from me.......
A little fabric and paper collage (3" across) made from some scraps provided by Cas Holmes (a stained teabag, some pretty fabric and a piece of old hand embroidery) along with a few things of my own.

Not my usual colour scheme is it? 
Ah well....back to the purple, lime and turquoise tomorrow ;-)

Those quilts are truly amazing, I am so glad you have shown so many. I love your Frances Pickering inspired piece, especially the colour scheme. I have just caught up with the fact that you are back on blogger again, wonderful goodies you have been making for your daughter's shop. Shame about the comments being deleted, been there , done that too! At least we all understand and will still be visiting. I have been guilty of accidentally deleting some important business emails - definitely not good! Cheers

The quilts are stunning - I particularly love the miniature ones. And the colours and composition of your collage piece work brilliantly.
