The day before our drive to Blackpool, I visited the National Quilt show at the NEC Birmingham.
A feast of quilts, inspiration and fabric galore.
I go for the day but some quilters spend the week or weekend, stichin and making, learning, teaching and immersing themselves in a living breathing “Princess and the Pea” tower of quilts.
This year on display was the oldest surviving silk quilt
In celebration a competition held showed modern inspired replicas
Here are a few more of my favourites this year
The show was bigger than I’ve ever seen it this year, I left, uplifted, inspired, in awe and very very tired indeed.
