Biennial Quilt Show at Barton le Cley


Last Saturday I went to a biennial patchwork quilt show in a nearby village. Sewing is very much part of cottage life, at least it is in this cottage! and I was pleased to go along and see what other people had done.

The quilts were fantastic as you will see in the following pictures:

Larry found an appropriate one: Someone had made a quilt of American flags. Isn’t that neat?

I hope you enjoyed your trip round the quilt exhibition with me. Which one did you like best?

  1. There is some stunning work there.. and I did enjoy the trip. But it’s impossible to choose one. I prefer more muted colours, so would go for 2 or 15. And the sheep!!

  2. one of my favorite pass-times!
    I spent hours looking at quilts…
    5 is my favorite… have never done a black and white…I just might start one soon…
    I love the ladybug ones, # 9…and then I kept forgetting to count LOLs…
    so I will just say I like them all some more than others!
    What a wonderful day …yes sewing is my cottage’s life too….
    Thank you for sharing your day….and giving me some ideals…
    Take Care…

  3. I love them all but I especially like Number 13 and number 27, πŸ™‚ they certainly gave me that WOW factor, what time and patience they must have taken in making, I have only ever made one quilt which was small, for a dolls pram, I made it out of scraps of dress material left over from my daughters dresses when she was small that i had made… I had forgotten all about that until now… πŸ™‚
    Lovely photos , thank you for sharing your day, I felt as i was there walking around viewing.. πŸ™‚
    Enjoy your week

    • Yes it was a lovely show and the stall selling their wares was great too. I bought a gift for one of my daughters-in-law and felt very pleased with myself for doing so.
