Festival of Quilts 2013

Ok so it’s been ages since my last post, but let’s not dwell on that!  I have a recent flurry of craftiness to report on.

Firstly the Festival of Quilts.  This was my fifth year at the festival and it’s one of my favourite days of the year.  I love looking at all of the inspiring quits and stocking up my fabric stash.  But this year it was more exciting because I entered a quit.  I entered the new ‘My First Quilt’ category with my first quilt.  As it was a new category I had no idea what the standard would be or the type of thing people would enter, but I had no expectations of winning but just thought it would be fun to enter.  And it was, it was very exciting (although I was a little nervous) to see it hanging in the exhibition.

I didn’t place in the category but it was fun to enter and has made be consider one of the other categories in the future, maybe the miniature quilt category (a bit more manageable time-wise).

Here are some of the other quilts that caught my eye.

And some of the fabric I bought.  I’m loving the combination of coral, aqua and grey at the moment.  I think this will be a new quilt.
