Merry Berry Fun!!

With You, With Me, With Them Quilt Show

Here we go! Another one of my super long posts reporting all my recent adventures.

They had been displayed with lots of space around them and plenty room for people to move around.  It was an amazing feeling for me to see so many of my quilts on show in one place. I had quilts spanning from early quilts right through to my recent quilts. I pulled out one of my first quilts for the show, because everyone loves The Beatles. The quilt is huge! you can see it's a little bit gathered at the top to fit on the rack.  My choices selection of quilts was based on having a variety of styles and colours. It meant there would be a quilt or two to suit everyone's taste.  A close up of one of my story cards.
