The Festival of Quilts 2013 - More of My Quilts and Other Stuff.........



The Pictorial Category

My quilt Ghost Mine did not get into the exhibition CQ@10 last year - but that meant that I had a ready made quilt for the Festival of Quilts this year. Great way to recycle, I think. Remember, if you don't get a quilt into one exhibition, you can always use it for another. It will join the very last CQ@10 exhibition:

 Level One Gallery, Rhondda Heritage Park, Trehafod, Nr Pontypridd, Wales - 16th Nov to 31st Dec

Ghost Mill


The Miniature Category

I also entered in the Miniature category, with one of my 2013 journal quilts. A category I was very proud to win in 2009 with Little Thin Blue Line. It is not strictly a miniature, but I still hope people will enjoy looking at it.

The Tombola

Contemporary Quilt Group was asked to run the Tombola in aid of the Quilter's Guild of the British Isles and we took in £8388 from nearly 3000 bookwraps in the four days the festival ran.

The Loot - believe me, this is very restrained shopping............

Lovely to review Festival again Mai-Britt, especially through your eyes. I hope it's all right if I lift your photo of the tombola? We had fun that day didn't we?

Oh, Julie please do... Spread the word, Contemporary Quilt is such a great group to belong to. It was great to meet you for more than a nano second!

Karen, thank you......
If you are confused by my reply on Facebook, I used my Danish/ family platform rather that my English / quilter one. Reply the same, as is the person ;0)

No matter how good we think we will be there is always something we just have to have.
Love to see the quilts, thanks.
