Yesterday my friend and I attended The UK National Quilt Championships at Sandown, organised by Grosvenor http://www.grosvenorshows.co.uk/view_show.php?ID=29
I was really happy to see that hand quilting is alive and well! The Championship Quilt was truly stunning, hand quilted with colonial knots and beads
'Pearl Princess' by Sandie Lush
There were lots of other wonderful quilts too...
A version of 'Stonefields' by Tansy Martin which won an award for hand appliqué
Some really fun Dogs quilts by Monika Wutzle of Brazil
And this one I adored - so much fun!
'Hot Dogs' by Moira Neal
There was an incredible display of the work of Gilli Theokritoff including these...
I think these quilts now go on tour around the country with Grosvenor, there are so many more worth seeing if you can. http://www.grosvenorshows.co.uk
