FoQ You!

Last weekend Victoria and I made the trip up to Birmingham from London to spend some time admiring my brilliance,

Excuse me!  I can't see!

Excuse me! I can’t see!

I mean seeing the amazing quilts that were entered into this years Festival of Quilts show. We had made plans to meet up with our friends Emily and Michelle on Friday night for some dinner.  Emily had a booth selling her wonderful tapestry kits.  We love them so much we got another one to work on.

On Saturday morning we were up bright and early to head over to the NEC.  I was trying to avoid the massive line like last year.  With our Starbucks in hand we made our way through the show and saw some amazing quilts.

There was a nice section of all London Tube and Transport Quilts.  I found this one and was in awe of the quilting on it.  Each Tube line was done in a different color and design.

The Tube map stitched out in great detail.

Was great to see Luke's work up close.  A masterpiece.
