Well, what can I say, other than it was a GREAT Festival of Quilts!
oh ....and I'm a little pooped!
I realise we didn't get a group photo, as we also had Anne
demonstrating on the Art Quilter frame too. A very talented lady who is soon to release a DVD of her own, you can see a trailer of it here
I was extremely lucky to meet up with some of the Brit Bee ladies ...
Judith of Needles and Lemons
, Terri and myself, photo kindly taken by the visiting head of Juki Europe!
And I also met Hazel too who blogs here and here
Of course I did manage to get out and about for a little meet and greet myself, which may or may not have included one or two purchases ....
from whence these lovelies came home with me!
And of course the wonderful Mandy of Simply Solids
, who I visited every day, as promised ...
I'm afraid I couldn't possibly repeat what led to this photo!
But I did find some fabulous finds on Mandy's stand ...
yes, Chartreuse! Well, what did you expect!
No trip for fabric would be complete without a little spree at Doughty's ...
so two backings and a almost a bolt's worth of white on white, I'm ready to go again!
And no self respecting quilter would leave without some thread....
Superior Kimono Silk and Superior Rainbows both from Martha
And these lovely Valdani threads were from Sarah at Crafty Notions
. I highly recommend them, they hold stocks of all sorts of interesting crafting materials, and Sarah's books are great!
I also stocked up on some Aurifil Mako 50 weight for piecing (my fave for this job)
And I must confess to these babies that were ordered before Festival and arrived today ...
I have something special in mind!
And that's all without the quilts, or the workshops and Masterclass I did! I'll be back!
