ARGH!! I've just noticed in my post listing that this one never made it past the DRAFT stage!! I now know it's because I didn't get round to finishing off the captioning and now I can't find the original photos to find the numbering!
So apologies, some quilts are not attributed as I always strive to do, please let me know of any additions/amends I can make.
Another late posting but I had to post this one as a trip to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC is becoming a yearly ritual/treat!
It's taken a while to get round to crediting all the quilts but finally here we are.
I had another enjoyable time I'm happy to say, bought some lovely things, saw lots of lovely things and came away very tired!
As usual there's lots of types of quilts on show, to cater to all tastes, there seemed to my mind to be rather a lot of art quilts this year and some not up my street at all!
So here is my take on what was good at FoQ 2012....
