June End

Can't believe it's the end of June already, this year is flying by pretty quickly.

I have lots to share but am slightly pushed for time at the moment so just a couple of pictures from the Sandown National Quilt Championships.

The first is the Kaleidescope Quilts stand (well half of it!) at the show.  I was so excited from the moment I walked in the door when this was the site that greeted me:

The next is the quilt that won Championship quilt at the show.  It's a pretty impressive quilt, one piece of fabric & long arm quilted.  This quilt has received mixed reactions. Let me know what you think.

Ah yes & have you noticed the new button over there at the very top ----------->>
It'll take you straight to our fabric site for a lovely selection of quality fabrics, just £1 P&P (uk only).

Happy stitching :)

Wealden Quilt Show (image heavy)

On Friday myself & Franney went for a, not so, quick drive to Crowborough, just past Royal Tunbridge Wells.  Here we were visiting the Wealden Quilt Show and these are some of the lovely quilts that we saw there.

I have to start by telling you about the quilt I voted for as my 'visitors choice' quilt.  Whist taking photos a lady commented that I was taking a picture of her 'Quillow'. A quillow being a quilt that all folds up nice & neatly into a cushion that is hiding attached to the back of the quilt (must make some of these!). Anyway, I asked if she made the other quillow on display & she gestered towards her grandaughter, 9 year old Ellie.  I loved Ellies' quilt, I loved her story of her making the quilt & I love that I got to meet her & she allowed me to take her photo to put on my blog.  So Ellie, a huge well done.... you got my vote :)


Happy stitching & happy Jubilee weekend :)
