It was the first time I had been to The Festival of Quilts and I hope 2018 will not be the last. I needed at least two days to stare at all the quilts I liked. The displays were amazing and better for me than any art gallery. Fortunately, like Rosemary, I took lots of photos. Two of my favourites were the picture quilts such as the woodland and the lion.

You certainly managed to take a lot of photos in your short time there, Rosemary.

I particularly like the miniature with the balls rolling down the slopes, although I think the large green one would cause a blockage! Like the first miniature too, but maybe a bit visually unbalanced?

To my eye, the 'Best in Show' is slightly unbalanced too, but I am told it is stunning in real life.

I am told that there didn't seem to be as many people on opening day as usual. What did you think when you were there?

In previous years ​I have been there on Thursday and Friday....and it was far less crowded on Sunday! Probably a few stalls may have sold out on some items....who knows...but by 2 ish there were a lot of reductions...on price sometimes or 11 instead of 10 for £xx! Rosemary
