Out and About

Yesterday , Ann and Pauline invited me to join them on a trip to The Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate . It was a lovely day, travelling in a coach with members of the Quilters Guild and meeting several people that I knew. The buzz went round that Jackie Martin, one of our members had won two awards.001 015


We all rushed around to see these two wonderful quilts. I cannot the patience that one must have to make such amazing creations.The use of colour and technique emphasise their beauty. Well done Jackie and I am proud to call you a friend.

There were some incredible quilts to see. Of course there were also the obligatory stalls as well as demonstrations and mini workshops. We watched a very interesting demonstration by Maggie Davies, who was using a paper product in her work. Later we joined a Folk   Art Anemone workshop lead by Jane Rollason.009

Here you can see Ann and Pauline busy at work. Finally we wandered around the rest of the exhibition and saw that Pauline had also won an award for her mini quilt seen to the right of Anns 004

piece. So a very good representation by members of our guild. It made the very early start for me all worthwhile.
