Once more....

Have a last peek at what happened at Birmingham Quilt Festival!

My husband found a charming lady with fine textile accessories ... a textile wonders.
The artist show a great creativity with a sense of humor.

These quilts are made by Marie Roper from Birmingham.
 She died this year but some of her great work were shown.

 Look at the great quilting!...and her dolls were so charming.

This is interessting... I think!
 Kate Dowty make quilts with a very exciting expression.
 The surface is so vibrant and textural......various kind of threads and stitches all over. 
The quilt can be built up with tiny pieces of fabric that overlap and the colors are fantastic.

The Judges choise in the category Art Quilts.
"Silencis" by Olga Gonzales Angulo, Spain.

Oh yes....... I looked a bit on the fabrics as well ......
 But talk about character ... or foolishness ....

 Believe it or not but I didn't buy a single piece of cloth!

Happy Quilting!

Well.....The Festival of Quilts is over for this time!
It was my first visit and a great experience. big!

I had planned to visit Birmingham for quilte a long time and  when my quilt Catwalk  was to be shown at EQAs exhibition ¨Diversity of Europe¨ then it was an occasion to go there.

I was pretty excited about how the the exhibition would look like....... nervous!

First of all....I found it!

 Hmmmm ..... what beautiful quilts!

EQAs 18 countries have each selected a quilt representing their country in this show.

Many different approaches and techniques!

Well.....I have about a hundred photoes of quilts and notes! Beautiful, exiting ones!
