a week that was and the FoQ

another busy week has been had in Monda land. Where does the time go? I have achieved a lot this week, but I can't believe it's almost over.

I went to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC yesterday. What an amazing amount of talent on show. Not everything was to my taste, but I appreciate the work that has gone into each an every piece. So many tiny stitches and hours upon hours of work. Sadly the light in the venue is not great for photo's - I took lots despite this though. Here are a handful of my faves (click on images to enlarge):
and I have to say I was very restrained where fabric was concerned. I only (really!) bought some silk to make my wedding flowers and accessories.

Now I'm off to look for a rain free part of the UK to see if I can cram in some seaside time this weekend.

Some of those quilts are just exquisite - I adore those subtle colours.

I'm so enjoying seeing your print designs too - delicious x


Ooh those quilts looked amazing, the effort that goes into them! The pale coloured sqaures and the hexagonal ones are my favourite. I hope you had a lovely time at the beach if you went the weekend.

Check out my posts to take part in my giveaway.
