Festival of Quilts 2008

So the news from the FOQ, I didn't win an award but I did get an Highly Commended on the contemporary strippy. The first place in this category went quite rightly to Philipa Naylor for a stunning wholecloth beautifully machine quilted in different coloured threads. This goes a little way to redress last year when her quilt only got a Judge's Choice here and went on the win it's category in one the major US shows.

And the biggest news is Ferret received all the awards she should have been receiving over the last couple of years. I did manage to get a couple of poor photos of Ferret receiving her award but sadly I left the card adapter on my bed at home. Will post them later if she didn't manage to chat up the official photographer for one to put on her blog.
I've bought a bolt of backing fabric, and some more of that lovely fabric for the quilt I'm working on at home and June Barnes lovely new book which I browsed last night and it looked wonderful but as I'd had a few drinks I'll review properly when I get home...
Sorry the photos are all over the place but although I've finally worked out how to highlight an area to move them, I don't seem to be able to cut and paste.


  1. Congrats on your quilt...

    Sounds like you are having a good time.

  2. Still working on getting photos. I think the answer is I will get them, but the question is when.

  3. Your gorgeous quilt looks even better in "real life" than in the photos!
