Characters I saw at the Birmingham Quitl Show

We thought this may have been an Aussie quilt - certainly had that feel about it. It's hanging the quilts & the name on the pub is the Woolshed Hotel - I reckon it certainly looks like an outback pub.  The catalogue didn't even have it listed so couldn't find out anything about it.  The quilts only have a number, name of the quilt and the category they are entered in. For those of you who may not know it, you can double click on a photo & check out the detail of the quilt.

Detail of one of the catergory winners - it was stunning.

One part of a tryp tych (I know I haven't spelt that correctly) on Frank Sinatra - "My Way"

This was achieved using hexagons - around 1/4" - absolutely amazing.

This was entered in the special challenge - "Festival" - these ladies were enjoying a street parade - just thought they were gorgeous - loved the rollers in their hair & the fags in their hands.

Someone I knew - Felicity's quilt - all the way from Oz. The art quilt category seemed to be one of the biggest - you really need 2 or 3 days to look properly.  We had four hours but were pleased with what we saw & who knows maybe one day we'll get back - one can dream.
