At the weekend it was the Malvern Spring Quilt Show. I’ve never been to this one before and was supposed to be going with a friend to hang out with her sis-in-law. Sadly, Friends little boy was not well so she couldn’t make it, but I still had a mooch over to meet G. It was a lovely day, sunny but not too warm and there were many lovely quilts to oggle over. I’m not really a fan of the more traditional quilts but can appreciate the time and effort put in to making them look beautiful. Here’s a run down of my favourites! (I’ll try and find the credits for who made what but I was too cheap to spend my precious fabric money on a show guide!!!)
CF04 Quilter’s cul-de-sac
BQ34 Welsh Wholecloth
BQ29 Bee my Honey
GR10 Rays of Gold
I was rather pleased to see a couple of science themed quilts! GR02 Where did I put those scissors and GR05 Engineering.

Some of the mini quilts were gorgeous – I may have to start making mini quilts!
