We had a lovely time together. The exhibition was of quilts that had some appliqué on them. Many of them had a LOT of intricate appliqué but there were others that were a combination of piecing and appliqué.
|You could go in a raffle to win this one - it was amazing!|
Very few of the quilts were small - quite a few were HUGE.
One made me laugh, the maker commented that she started off making a small quilt and then she would add to it, trying out new patterns and ideas. It was suitable for a big double (if not king-size) bed. (I don't have a photo of that one but it wasn't small!)
|Sue Jones - I think!|
|There was some interesting use of patterned fabric too, including Broderie Perse techniques.|
|This one included some kaleidoscope fussy cutting too.|
I was also inspired by some that had quite dark backgrounds, or relatively busy backgrounds, but worked well.
