An Extra Day.....Ingliston Show...Edinburgh 2012

Wow, every four years we are given an extra day to catch up, isn't that great except I could do with an extra catch up day every week.... I am a little behind with my blog posting so Feb 29th came around just in time!

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Edinburgh Spring Quilt Festival, here are a few of the quilts that caught my eye, they were all beautiful but these are some of my better photographs from that day.  I did ask permission to show you a few photos but it's not always possible to get a good shot when there are so many visitors.






















This was mostly an exhibition rather than a judged show. Some of the exhibitors were Anja Townrow, Rebecca Collins, Judith Wilson, Lesley Brankin, Patricia Archibald, Dilys Fonks and Jan Hassard.  Sorry if I missed anyone.

Of course there were also many shopping attractions too, I managed to resist fabric apart from a couple of Luna Notte FQ's to match my current piecing project.  Among other things I bought quick thread sewing needles (for tying off and burying while quilting), freezer paper, marking pencils and a couple of fabric stamps for some fun projects.
