This week I visited the quilt show in Birmingham at the N.E.C. and had an exciting time meeting up with friends and friends I hadn’t seen for a long time together with meeting new associates. It struck me that this was as important as the quilts. The heirloom quilts must be the most interesting to me although its is good to see that lots of people (mostly women) are ‘ stitching’. The Welsh Quilts and their association with the Amish designs was a very interesting stand and Dorothy Osler was signing her new book on the subject.
My most exciting find was a very small piece of work from one of my favourite quilters, Dorothy Caldwell as part of a larger group show.
All in all a very good show and well worth going.
