I bought some delicious fabric at Festival of Quilts.
Carnaby Street from Art Gallery Fabrics,
Scamper for birch fabrics,
a lovely batik
and Wildflower Wood by Lynette Anderson Designs.
I spent Thursday and Friday of last week in Birmingham at the Festival of Quilts.
Thursday was the spending day and the oohing and aaahing at the fabrics.
Then Friday was inspiration day, looking at the quilts on display.
Here are a few of many wonderful quilts...
How do we know when it's night?
Winner of Fine Art Quilt Masters 2013.
Eszter Bornemisza's work was beautiful.... some of her work and some details....
I really liked the straight line stitching. It's called Horizon II.
Vineta Cable, Light Uncovered.
"This work explores the ever changing nature of beauty and is inspired by Hinton St Mary mosaic, one of the earliest works of art depicting Christ"
A Slight Murmur of Starlings.
Unfortunately photography was forbidden in the exhibition space of Willy Doreleijers. She is a dutch textile artist and her work inspired and moved me the most.
go to portfolie to see her beautiful work.
Oh my goodness I want a piece on my wall.
I haven't picked up a pin or turned my sewing machine on for over a month.
So I should be fully charged for some serious sewing then.
