This is one of my all time favourite days out.
A group of lovely ladies and I set off this morning for a delightful day at the Quilt Show.

Yes, lovely quilty stuff was everywhere.
We wandered for hours, looking, touching, planning, dreaming till we were ready to drop, so off we went for some sustenance.
When we returned from lunch we entered the Quilt Competition section.

Oh my !

Rows and rows of beautiful quilts.

These ones in the colours of International Women's Day
 green, purple and white

 green being for growth;
violet for dignity
 and white for purity of purpose.

Right by the door was this prize winning beauty.

There were so many lovely quilts so I will show you a few that I thought were outstanding.

These modern designs were pretty spectacular.


Then there were those which were more traditional.

Thought you might like a closer look at this design.
 I think it is called a Dresden quilt.

Of course there were the traditional hexi quilts....

.....but look at this lovely modern take on the traditional hexi quilt.

I took some close-ups so you could see the detail better.

Vibrant !

I've saved some really interesting ones for tomorrow !
