Skegness Quilt Show

I had a delightful visit to the quilt exhibition staged by Jolly Quilters of Skegness and the Banovallum Quilters of Horncastle at the Methodist Church in Algitha Road, Skegness. It's on tomorrow, 1.00 -4.00 p.m. and well worth a visit if you're nearby.
Two stained glass window quilts caught my eye, the first, Dragonflies by Bess Smith and then a reverse applique quilt by Margaret Wheatley, both beautifully executed.
There was a lovely selection of cakes, a trade stall, tombola etc and also the group's challenge quilt results on display. They had made A4 quilts on the theme of a song title and we had to match the songs with the quilts. Some were very obvious, others less so, and there were two "Somewhere over the rainbow"s. Also on display was a stunning Calendar quilt with each small section cross-referenced in a file to its relevance to its date, a really interesting project.
