Festival of Quilts 2013

Better late than never, is my pictorial round-up of FoQ 2013!

I had a great day, saw lots of inspiring creations, bought some lovely items (pictures to follow!)
and didn't overspend!

The shopping is as much a part of the day as the viewing of everyones hard work!
There was quite a lot of Christmas fabric around, most if it garish and twee but the above range at Eternal Maker (I think!) was much nicer.

I enjoyed the Bramble Patch stand, I was tempted by this pattern but my littlest isn't in dresses much at the moment, she's not the most girly (yes, due to me!) and they're just not practical! 

Now I must confess a secret here, I don't like Kaffe Fassetts stuff much (heresy!) but we sat down for a rest while he was being interviewed and I found him really interesting, he's a good speaker and listening to his creative process/his passion for colour was really refreshing.
I also learnt how to pronounce his name, Kaafe, rather than Kaff!

Ok, so on to the quilt round usual lots of different styles, lots of different standards..enjoy..
