Well, after some dithering about whether it was really worth the long drive, last week I went to the Festival of Quilts 2019 at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.
It has taken me nearly a week to sort out the pictures, but now I have got them organised, I have decided to do a series of posts with groups of the pictures, so they are easier to manage.
This first post covers quilts with bright colours, split into a few collages. As you might expect, the pictures are of variable standard, as I had to dodge round the other visitors and get the best shot I could.
