You may remember that last year I regaled you with tales of my Horizons quilt. This quilt was made for contemporary quilt group challenge at the Festival of quilts at the NEC.
It was a great exhibition and very well received and actually after the event I did not get to take the quilt home but instead it went on its travels. Recently it was displayed, along with other quilts from the exhibition, at the Weavers Gallery in Ledbury and since then it has travelled to Prague.
However, what I did not know was that there was a plan to create a book from all the quilts that were entered for the challenge. But a couple of weeks ago I received an email telling me that the book was ready and I could order a copy if I wished.
And here it is.
And here is the page with my quilt. I have to say that the photograph here is much better than the photograph I managed to take. All the quilts have been photographed really well in the book. This was a challenge because of the dimentions of the quilts. I don't think that the photographs were professional, in that I don't think that the contemporary culture group paid a professional photographer to take photographs. I believe several of the Quilters themselves took these photographs. They did a brilliant job.
