The Quilts UK 2016 show at Malvern is upon us from the19th until 22nd May. We arrived early on Thursday, the opening day, and spent a blissful few hours looking at some seriously good competition quilts and a bewildering array of tempting fabrics and notions offered on the trade stands. Angie and I made a pact not to overindulge since our fabric stashes are already stuffed to the gunnels, and we pretty much held our nerve….. well, almost!
The halls were crowded so it was difficult to get around, but we went with the flow and I think we got to see most everything. Our friends at White Cottage Country Crafts were there, so we had the opportunity to view again a finished example of a quilt that Angie is currently working on. I simply adore the colourways on it, lovely pastels and Parisian style prints. I’ve included a few of the blocks she’s already done in the photo gallery below. I think it’s called the Starry Checkerboard Quilt but I’m not absolutely certain on that since I lost the piece of paper I wrote the name down on. It’s not shown on White Cottage’s website, but I am sure the details are just a phone call away if anyone wants to know more.
