Festival of Quilts

The Festival of Quilts is live at the NEC, Birmingham this weekend (10th – 13th August) and is well worth a visit.

As well as an array of stalls selling fabrics, threads, felting, wool and a whole lot more crafting materials the event has an exhibition of work throughout the halls displaying creations from professional an amateur artists.

I took a quick walk around on my lunch break today so here’s a few of my favourites….

and my absolute favourite was a portrait created from thread.  They actually had two on display but I couldn’t get a clear photo of the second as there were too many people standing around admiring the work….
