Open studios - closed

Just to say the planned Open Studios for S.E. Berkshire has been abandoned for September 09. Hopefully it will be an event that will happen sometime in the future.

Festival of Quilts - Birmingham NEC

My eyeballs ached! There was much to see and much to enjoy. A set of four of my small journal quilts were on display with the Contemporary Quilt group.

The piece pictured above was intriguing - sorry, I don't know its creator, I didn't buy a catalogue.

Minerva Arts Centre, Llandidloes

Travelling through Wales for our family summer holiday meant I could visit the Summer Exhibition of the Quilt Association at Llandidloes. My Thin Blue Line quilt was selected to be included in the exhibition, so it was very exciting to be able to see it 'in situ'. http://www.quilt.org.uk/

Photographs were taken, but they have disappeared onto my other half's laptop. My favourite pieces were by Becky Knight - http://www.beckyknight.co.uk/ I was fascinated by the effects created by the quilts containing pebbles and pills.
