Festival of Quilts

Despite living in Europe for most of twelve years, I never did make it to Birmingham, England for Festival of Quilts. This year, I especially wish I could be there.

For one, the 144 small quilts from the first two years of Twelve by Twelve’s art quilt challenge will be there, plus Twelves Helen, Françoise, and Diane! If you are in England this weekend, please take the time to go to the show and search out our exhibit area and say hello.

(Thank you Helen, Françoise and Diane for hanging the exhibit and sending this update photo!)

Secondly, I wish I could be there to see SAQA’s Beyond Comfort exhibit in which I have three aprons from my Army Wife series. Helen has been checking things out and says my aprons have a great spot near the front of that exhibit–yay! So, go say hello to my aprons as well.

I’ve heard that Festival is the premier quilt and quilt art show in Europe and definitely worth a visit. There are many exhibits, classes, vendors and the works. Helen and Diane will be attending lectures by my heros Kaffe Fasset and Laura and Linda Kemshall. Yes, I am a bit jealous.

  1. i’ve never been to a big serious quilt show. maybe i need to plan to go to one…

    congrats on having your work exhibited there and in so many ways!

  2. Congratulations on getting exposure in two ways at this important show. I hope this is only the first showing of your Military Wives series.

  3. Congrats on having your aprons there. They look wonderful. I would love to go to England anytime, but especially for that show. To listen to the Kemshalls, Claire Benn & Leslie Morgan would be wonderful. I did get the dvd for the 2008 show and it was well worth the money. It is mostly the lectures and they were great. Have a great weekend.

  4. Ach wie schön, ich freu mich für dich! Ich wäre so gerne dort und würde mir die Ausstellung anschauen! Aber ich habe es auch noch nicht nach England geschafft. Vielleicht nächstes Jahr…
    Liebe Grüße nach Hawaii…
