Even now, some two weeks later, my head is still spinning with all I have seen at the Festival of Quilts.
After my rather randomly chosen quilts that caught my eye there in my previous blogpost I would now like to share with you two exhibitions that impressed me.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into this exhibition Paisley Parade by Sandie Lush, a series of handquilted Welsh cot quilts using the paisley quilt pattern.
All small quilts, lovingly and beautifully handquilted:-
As demure and modest as the little quilts in this exhibition were, the large quilts in the next one were spectacular!
The Baltimore Album Quilts from the International Quilt Study Center & Museum exhibition!
I went back to this one so many times during my days at the Festival of Quilts, let me show you why:-
For me the star of this exhibition if not the whole show was this one, so many details, so many techniques, so beautiful:-
So much inspiration, don't you think?
I hope you enjoyed this second blogpost of the Festival of Quilts, one more to follow…. please join me again next time.
