A late sum up.

Festival of Quilts 2014

I know this is well over now but exhaustion (the good kind) and a holiday means I am only just getting around to this. Above is the calm before the storm, just before the beginning of the show. The rest went by in a huge wonderful whirl. So busy and so great!

Festival of Quilts

The one photo that I did take of my booth in total is blurry so I have put together a little Pic Monkey collage.
A big thank you to all who came by and said hello.
It was a thrill meeting people from all over the world, especially the Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Icelandic ladies that came to my workshops (not forgetting the British!) Sorry no photos. A ninety minutes class is pretty full on and photo taking completely slipped my mind.

It was a great show with some outstanding work. I particularly liked the work of these ladies Anne Johnston, Susan Shie and Leslie Tucker Jenison (along with the other work of the Fine Art Quilt Masters) all of whom I got to meet and chat to :D
Time to get back to work!
