Festival of Quilts

Had a fabulous four days at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham. As always, you can visit my pictures on Flickr to see the event. I even got the opportunity to dress a lovely Hungarian artist named Eszter Bornemisza, friend of my friend Susan Brisco. It was lucky that I lived close enough I could bring my kimono things to dress her. I got a lovely tsumugi kimono from Susan purchased by Katie Chaplin as a thank you for me helping out at her Japan Crafts stall. I also purchased a gorgeous embroidered haori from Katie. Can't wait to get it all on to try!

  1. Nice pictures. Quilting always conjures up images of colourful patched together bedcovers.
    But a lot of these are really great, like nr 066 and 086 and day 2 026. Lovely kimono Eszter is wearing. She'd look even better with her hair combed ^^ .
