to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham that's where.
And guess who got to take a class with the Fat Quarterly crew. Well... two of them anyway. Katy Jones on the left and Tacha Bruecher on the right did a really good job of
the winner of the Traditional Quilts category 'Hearts Desire' made by Deborah Kemball.
You won't believe it (alright you would) but I bought her book Beautiful Botanicals a while back. If you love applique then you really should add it to your library ... you won't regret it.
I did take more photos of other quilts that caught my eye for one reason or another. In fact I took way too many to include in a post without blowing the gubbins out of my computer. Because I didn't want you to miss out.... I figured out how to add a Flickr Badge in my sidebar. Wow... even I'm impressed with me! So.. take a minute.. grab a cup of tea click on it and take a look. There's bound to be something there to get your creative juices flowing.
The trip was lovely and I wouldn't have missed it for the world... but it's still nice to be home. Especially when I get to do this....
tramp about the garden in the pouring rain rounding up fugitive cows!. Seems we do have greener grass on our side of the fence after all.
Now! Right here.... right now... I promise to blog again tomorrow and show you all the goodies that came home with me.
