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.
Diversity in Europe Gallery has one quilt selected by a Guild to represent each country and Sweden was represented by Anna-Greta Lindström's "Kurbits"
I have lots of more to show - Another time.

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.
