Festival of Quilts

I've been in Birmingham, Festival of Quilts, for a couple of days, I learned a lot and have seen many fabulous quilts. On Thursday I took a half day class for Sheena Norquay, "Creative C Curve Borders for Machine Quilting". Here is one of her quilts from the exhibition, unfortunately a bad photo as the quilt hang very low and I had a problem to knee. Her quilt is machine pieced, fabric painted, free motion embroidered and quilted. Hand appliquéd.

Here is another amazing pictorial quilt
 
Lea McComas "Panning for Gold"
 
Miniature Quilt Winner was Kumiko Frydl with the marvellous quilt "Temptest". Foundation paper pieced, reverse appliquéd. Free motion quilted, machine embroidered on binding.

There was also a miniature made by Philippa Naylor, quite interesting as I have only seen her big and very bright colored quilts before. The quilt is machine quilted with hand embrodery additions.
