I had a great time yesterday at The Festival of Quilts a t Birmingham. It rapidly developed into a day for chatting and meeting for coffee. Amongst the people I spoke to were Lise ( will e-mail you when you get home) Julie, Sally, Artmixer, Maggie and I loved having the chance to see Ferrets quilts up close - she deserved the awards.
Later, just reread what I wrote: meant to add well done to Sally for your strippy and to everyone else who entered such brilliant quilts...mental note, do not blog when half asleep!!!
Somehow, the halls didn't seem as crowded as last year and after 4 o'clock there were plenty of chances to take photos.
Rounded off the day by getting the train back to Nottingham and going straight to hen night, yes I was there, blowing up balloons and making animals as well as rather rude structures in the middle of a pub in Nottingham AND I WAS SOBER!!
