Anyhow ... a bit of eye candy first of all from the Festival of Quilts last month which I attended for the first time with a local patchwork group. I'm more attracted to the art quilts (as you'll see from the quilts I chose to photograph) but this first image of a tiny miniature quilt caught my eye. Such intricate work and beautifully stitched.
I love the colours on this next quilt - the progression from the cool blues, through yellow to the pops of pink and red over on the right.
This still life quilt of a vase of flowers, bowl of fruit and an open book is so delicate. I'd love to have this one hanging on my wall.
A real contrast to the last image is this quilt in fiery reds and oranges against the cooler blue of the background. Gorgeous!
This one is reminiscent (to me) of church buildings in Russia with the icons and all that gold.
A positive rainbow in this next one with such intricate scrollwork - another miniature quilt.
Food for thought!!
And finally - just to prove that I am doing some stitching - here are the final samples for the two modules of my City and Guilds course that I've completed so far.
