A bit more from Festival of Quilts

August is slipping away already, yet it seems that there is still so much to digest from Festival of Quilts this year.

I did gallop round the exhibition quilts and there were many beautiful quilts, but for whatever reason this little selection caught my eye.

This first quilt caught my eye simply because the stone work was so realistic.

This caught my eye because of the subject matter and the powerful colour.

I particularly liked the painted leaves and olives on this next quilt.

These were not winning quilts - to the best of my knowledge they were not 'judges choices' either.  But they caught my eye.
