Festival of Quilts 2016

Our pal and member of our design team Lou popped over to this years Festival of Quilts, had a ball, and decided to tell us all about it, with some FAB piccies! Thanks Lou! These are great!

Hi Ladies,

FoQ was amazing! It’s a sewing /quilting paradise filled with so many amazing quilts and shops full of fabric!
This year, for the first time they had a modern quilt category, so it was great to see so many amazing quilts that I’ve been admiring via IG in actual real life!
It’s also a great opportunity to meet up with other seeing  friends, old and new!
Here’s some of my favourite quilts:
