Quilt Fair...

went to the Edinburgh Quilt Fair on Friday saw lots of lovely quilts. As usual I spent far too much on fabric and books. Not that I really needed the fabric or the books.... No I did need the books!!

The Painted Quilt by Linda & Laura Kemshall (ISBN-10:0-7153-2449-7) an absolute must!!

Sew Pretty Homestyle ( ISBN-10:0-7153-2749-6) a Tilda book seriously yummy eye candy.

I would have posted a picture of the front cover but I'm not sure about copyright.
Did you know that there was a Tilda Addict blog?

I'm thinking, maybe I need a craft blog as well...I love to do so many varied things. A bit of a drawback sometime.

Found some images of a piece of fabric making I'd done a wee while ago. Thought I'd share it with you...






Some of the highlight machining on the brown flowers have gone a bit wonky...
Bye for now.

Hi, did you buy the Painted Quilt? I was thinking about it but have just sent off for SAndra Meech's more recent book - the Creative Quilt. As you know I'm not really a P&Q sort of person but I do love some of the more painterly techniques of some. Think the main problem is steering clear of twee-ness. Or is that just me.......
