A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

Festival of Quilts

Anyone going this year?  First I wasn't going to, then I thought I might go on Sunday as it is apparently much quieter, but now I think I might venture into the dangerous waters of Thursday because several peeps I know are going....  Anyone fancy pushing my wheelchair and getting in free?!

I'm probably not going now, so charge you with enjoying it on my behalf. Buy lots, and come back inspired.

If anyone has a quilt in this year, good luck with it. I saw one on Facebook (Twisted Thread page) that had been posted as the exhibition was being set up....it was absolutely brilliant.

I am flying down this pm with 5 others from our quilting group. We are there till saturday pm. I saw that quilt too Annabel....awe inspiring. Will make my entry very mundane!Which is "Portrait of a Tudor Rose" in the pictorial group.

I'm not well enough to go, so had to pull out of the classes I was supposed to be teaching... ah well, not to worry. Have a wonderful time, everyone who is going

I'm not well enough to go either, and I think I might need my own wheelchair to get round...

Oh peeps! What a crock lot :) Let's hope someone comes back with some wonderful photos. There are some on the Festival of Quilts Facebook page, but not many yet. I might be able to manage Friday very briefly but don't know for definite yet. (Can I afford to go?!!)

I'm on my way now - I'll do my best to get lots of lovely photos :o) So between Elma & I we should be able to create the atmosphere! Hope you all feel better soon...
