Two of the lectures I attended at the Quilters' Guild conference last weekend were particularly inspiring. Christine Porter (who will probably be familiar with from The Quilt Show spoke on tessellations and patterns in pavements and illustrated her talk with some pictures of stunning tiled floors in cathedrals here in England and others in Italy. She has published a book about these, "Viva Venezia" She had two of her quilts with her so that we could get a closer look. This lovely one of irises was criticised by the quilt police for focussing too much on green!
