Sandown Quilt Show 2014
Handbag Collection R&K Quilters 2014These quilts are all smaller than A4 / foolscap sheet of paper. I've tried to include a penny (= roughly a euro or a US cent in size) to give you some comparison - without it these would look large! Some hand pieced, some machine pieced, and the same with the quilting - all astonishingly beautiful and intricate!
I love the use of ribbon here
Machine quilted - embroidey machine?

A hand bag quilt!
Avril spotted that the kite shapes were painted, but the red borders were pieced. See below for the penny to get an idea of the size

  1. Benta - than you so much for taking me along to Birmingham with you. Wonderful to see such an eclectic mix of styles and colours. I like so many of them - there are some very clever crafters out there!

  2. Some wonderful quilts - for me the best ones were the 'Norwegian Quilt' and the harbour scene below it. No wonder you had a lovely time! xxx
