Friday Night Sew-In and Exhibitions to Enjoy

Tomorrow is FNSI time.  Hooray, hooray.  This month we all need to go to Bobbi's as Heidi is moving.
I think I'll be doing a lot of negative sewing after a tension "issue" with my machine
but I'm hoping to do something positive too, probably some cutting - preparing for my wavy four-patch tutorial.  I'll also be meeting up with my sister and seeing how she's getting on with her tumbling blocks.  Please come back on Saturday to find out what I got up to.

Oh no, I won't be able to post on Saturday as I'm going to the Victoria and Albert Museum in the big city for their Quilts 1700-2010 exhibition.  I'll post about both when I get home from the adventure.
I've heard mixed reports about the Quilt Exhibition so I'm looking forward to forming my own opinions.  It's well worth a trip to the website even if you can't get to London for the exhibition.  There's a free pattern from Amy Butler to download and, be still my beating heart, limited edition FABRIC to purchase.  I know I won't be able to take photographs at Quilts 1700 -2010 but there is a comprehensive exhibition catalogue available, more on that when I've seen it.

And while I'm writing about exhibitions I've just read in this month's Patchwork and Quilting Magazine that there will be an exhibition of Magie Relph's story (see my previous few posts), "Under African Skies", telling how she has been sourcing African fabrics for the past ten years.  This exhibition is at the Quilt Museum in York from 10th July - 16th October, see the museum website for full opening details.

Don't forget to go to Bobbi's and join in the Friday Night Sew-In - click on the FNSI button on the right above my blog archive.


  1. I'm sure you will enjoy the exhibition, I like the sound of a tutorial, cant wait!

  2. I have a copy of the V and A Quilts 1700 - 2010 catalogue / programme that a thoughtful friend came back with from London. She and her daughter paid the 20 pound each and enjoyed the exhibition. The daughter not being a quilter thought I might like to have her booklet.
    I look forward to hearing what you think after viewing the Exhibition.


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
