Norfolk Quilters' 30th Anniversary Exhibition - 1

Some eye candy from the Norfolk Quilters' 30th Anniversary Exhibition.  Close ups of my favourite quilts to follow tomorrow so don't forget to come back!
The Music Room, in the Georgian Assembly House in Norwich shown above, was a stunning venue for the exhibition.
A wonderful range of styles and techniques was on display.

The quilts and items in these glass cabinets will remain on display for a month.
Finally for today, this is the Norfolk Quilt, mark 2.  The first Norfolk Quilt, which was made in 1981 and donated to the City Library in Norwich, was destroyed in the 1994 fire which also destroyed the library.  In 1997 it was decided to make a new Norfolk Quilt, on similar themes to the original but not a replica, which was donated to the New Millennium Library in Norwich. Eighteen members of Norfolk Quilters created the new quilt which was then quilted by Margaret Rust.


  1. What a beautiful setting Lis, just right for all those lovely quilts on display. I'll be interested to see your favourites next post. And was that a Cromer Crab on the Norfolk quilt? We have stayed in Cromer, it is a lovely place.

  2. Looks like a great place to hold a quilt expo, there are some beautiful quilts too!

  3. My goodness what a lot of beautiful quilts. It would take me a month just to see them all.

  4. What a wonderful variety of quilts all in one place, where else could you enjoy such loveliness (except in blog land)! The quilt in the second quilt photo far right is my favourite - looks like my sort of rustic autumnal colours.
