Spring Quilt Festival, Exeter 2018

Rather belatedly, due to a lack of phone and internet for the past 3 weeks, here are some of the quilts that I enjoyed on a visit to the Spring Quilt Festival at Westpoint near Exeter.

The first exhibits that I wanted to see were by a group of ladies from Cornwall called the Textile Maids.
These three are by Chris Treweek and, from left to right, are called "Reflection in Holy Well Pool", "St Madron Holy Well" and "Summer Pond".

and this beautiful depiction of "24 hours at Goonhilly Downs" is by Margaret Pellow

By complete contrast these six small square wall quilts are by Radiance Quilters, a group of longarm quilters who challenged each other to showcase the back of their work alongside the front of a quilted pattern fabric. What an interesting and very effective idea.

This row quilt by Kay Edwardes is called Colourplay and looks such fun to make. The hand dyed fabrics are by Nikki Perrington.

The South West Quilters challenge was Reflections this year and I love this quilt by Annie Yeo called "Reflections on Childhood".

Finally, I adore all the wall quilts by Brenda Thomas - they are delightful. These are just two of the many that were on display:-
"The Dog Walking Year"

and "Green".

A great day out and a big thank you to all the people who take the time and trouble to exhibit their work.
Happy Sewing - Anita x
