amazing !!!!

the only way to describe the quilt show at belsay hall today :-) i was blown away by the fabulous quilts, wall hangings, cushions and bags that the ladies of the north east region of the quilter guild had put on show, i took loads of photos and thought i might put a few on here, i was definitely inspired to have a go at more than just rectangles and squares, so watch this space LOL

this one might just be my favourite as i loved the colour combo and it's made from moda jelly rolls which i have :-) it's called sleeping under the shangri-la stars and is by angela mcintosh, i took lots of close ups of this one :-)
this is morning star quilt by linda durant and is a pattern i really fancy having a go at, love the colours in this one toothis one is called sugar and spice by audrey smith and started life as a cushion before growing into a quilt this is compass point by margo harryman, i totally loved this one, especially the way the quilting radiated out from the centre, just gorgeous
this is japenese flower garden by linda durrantthis is a wall hanging called autumn watch and is by diane cairns
this is baltimore blues by angela greaveson and is hand appliqued, hand quilted and embellishedthis one is called edna and is by jules kerry i'm so glad i went to the show, it was so inspiring and i also found out that there's a huge quilt and fabric show in harrogate in september so i think i might have to have a little visit down there armed with a bank loan for all the fabric i bring back LOL
