Good morning to you,

On Friday I met with a group of friends  and we went to The Harrogate Quilt Festival. We were all very excited, as not only were there many quilts waiting to be admired, but there would also be stall holders selling all those wonderful items we quilters need.

I took lots of photographs of quilts and these I thought you would enjoy looking at.

This was my favourite I love the array of colours

And of course I had to include this Union Jack

Lanterns of Memories

This lovely quilt was stitched by my friend and the lanterns were made by using recycled materials.

The following three pieces were entitled
Glimpses of Britain

Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II

No introduction necessary if you were a teenager in the '60's
John, Paul, George and Ringo
The Beatles

Beautiful work

This quilt reminds me of wild cornflowers
swaying in a meadow

These were miniature quilts
they were exquisite

The ladies who created these miniatures are very talented indeed.

This quilt I had to include, I am just sorry that the colour isn't showing as bold as it actually was. In fact it was ruby red thread which was worked in cross stitch.  It is also hand quilted and took 4 years to complete.  What a work of love.

I love the different blocks on this quilt

....and as autumn is on it's way I thought you would enjoy this quilt with it's autumnal colours.

There were so many, many more quilts being exhibited and these are just a few.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Take care and I will see you later in the week.

Best Wishes

Daphne xxx
