Festival of Quilts 2012

So many quilts to look at and so many stalls to visit, all selling fantastic fabric, haberdashery, notions, etc that I didn't know I needed until I saw it...

This post has some of the quilts that caught my eyes, although only carrying my mobile phone (to avoid the heavy camera bag!), the quality of the photos are so-so; apologies in advance!

One from the Winners' wall. Fantastic detail!

This one was on the winners' wall and by far the most popular;
this being one of eight panels of the quilt

I believe this one was 2nd place in the Art category. I love the colours

Part of a much larger quilt, sporting 'postcards'

Interesting mixture of techniques!

Love the detail of this one, almost looks like a 
paining!

Love the placement of the blocks in this one!

Amazing!!! Every feature is made out of fabric, no painting!

Tiny, tiny hexagons, LOTS of them. This is just a small part of the quilt...

Star quilt in a 'new' fashion.

Kaffe Fassett was there to promote and sign some books....

Three panels, reminding me of summer, holiday and Cornwall!

From the International (EQA) section, Sweden. Crossroads. Cold!

Detail from a huge rather intricate looking quilt

May need to try this! Simple but very eye catching!

Wonky house and hill!. Love it! Part of a much larger quilt.

Wonky skyline!
