How I Wish I Could Quilt and you will too when you see these!

I haven;t had a great week this week but today I had a lovely day out with my dear Mum. We decided at the last minute to venture through to Edinburgh to a Spring Quilt show. Though I don;t quilt I managed to pick up a few bits and pieces but I will leave that until another post. I just had to share these images off some of the Quilts. No matter what kind off craft you do you just have to appreciate these stunning "paintings on fabric". The little mini ones were in a competition, first prize was the bluebell woods. There all beautiful but if I had to choose my top three in the main Quilts it would be The Magical Isle, Ladies holding hands around the world and the time piece one with the watches. I  hope you enjoy and please share your top three. Hugs!

Quilting art is amazing. I went to the same quilt show a number of years ago and enjoyed the experience.

Hi, returning the following!
Wonderful quilts, I love the blue peacock one and the two dragons.
I don't quilt either but I do appreciate the artwork and skill just to get those corners right let alone stitching the whole thing!!
