Festival of Quilts II

In my last blogpost I promised show you some of the antique quilts on show at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. Let’s go and first visit the Family Connections exhibition hosted by the UK Quilter’s Guild:

This stunning quilt obviously was the inspiration for the new fabric collection by Karen Styles called Elizabeths Dowry  :-

I loved and was amazed by this exhibition by the Quilter’s Guild, obviously guarding their heritage is close to their hearts and something they put a lot of effort into, they have built an extensive collection since their formation in 1979 and are very proud to share it. To be honest this focus on what is the basis, the history of our shared passion is something I do miss at our national guild in The Netherlands.

Next, let’s have a look at the other exhibtion with antique quilts, Kaffe Fassett was kind enough to show some of his antique quilts at this show:

And to end our tour of this exhibtion another stunning quilt:

Hope these antiques inspire you as much as they do me!
