Di Ford and Petra Prins

South West Quilters treated all the groups and individuals who had made quilts for their very successful "Saints of Cornish Churches", to an afternoon talk by Di Ford and Petra Prins, held at Cowslip Workshops. There must have been about 200 ladies present and after a very interesting talk when Petra showed us her collection of antique quilts, sharing her knowledge of dating quilts by the fabrics and dyes used, and Di explained some of the methods she uses to create her beautiful quilts, we had the added delight of wall to wall quilts in the barn, made by Di, Petra and some of their students.

These are the antique quilts displayed on a table after the talk.

Just look at the tiny triangles used in this quilt in the centre of the table!

This has to be my favourite of Di's quilts on show. I love every single border.

And this is Di's fussy cut hexagon quilt - an inspiration.

This is one of Petra's quilts that I particularly like.

The exhibition is still on until Sunday 22nd May 2016 - it's amazing!

Happy Stitching
