Quilt Creations at Birmingham

I think I may have mentioned before that for one short weekend in August, Birmingham becomes the centre of the universe - at least as far as textiles are concerned.

And quilting just not have to be two dimensional.   One of my favourite sections of the show is always the Quilt Creations section where three dimensional stitched items are displayed.  The variety and imagination can be mind blowing.  Let the pictures speak for themselves.

    1. If I am still in this house next year (my work home as opposed to my home home) then you can come and stay and we will go together.

    1. Kit - this is by Kate Crossley (and the photo beneath is a detail of the piece). She has a website www.katecrossley.com

      But it is absolutely fab isn't it. I love the Quilt Creations section of the Festival.

I love to receive your comments - so please say hello. I have just been brave and turned the word verification off. Lets hope those spammy gate crashers don't get in!
