Festival of Quilts Aug 2011, a set on Flickr.

I made my first visit to the Festival of Quilts this year and wasn't quite sure what to expect but the creativity, skill and imagination was stunning to see. I took buckets of photos and have been trying to post them in a slide show but given up in disgust so here are some pics if you can be patient enough to click on them.

Fantastic photos Carol, and your Flickr slide show did work. The detail, texture and quilting skills are truly amazing. Somehow the standard keeps getting higher every year. Thanks for sharing these with us.

Stunning photos Carol and well doe for being so patient, but your flickr slide show works great.

My fave one has to be the black and white face, it's brilliant. Reminds me of the face stamp off one of the TH plates.

Glad you enjoyed your day out - Sam xxx

My friend went to this and was showing me some photo's she took and I can see she was as impressed as youwere because you both have a lot of the same images.Wish I could have gone myself after seeing the images and Im not even a quilter - very inspirational indeed.
