Linda Turner had an exhibition of some of her wonderful quilts, mainly landscapes. Apologies for the angle of some of my photographs and, as ever, if you appear in one of my pictures but would prefer not to be on my blog, please email me and I'll remove the photograph.
I was impressed with the work of two other quilters in particular, the incredible appliqué and quilting of Liz Jones and the beautifully textured, embellished work of Sally Holman:
Sally Holman and Janet Cook, "Streak of Lightning"
Liz Jones, "Shadowland"
Liz Jones, "Feathered to the Nines"
Liz Jones, "Tudor Rose"
Some of Sally Holman's lovely work inspired by the coastline of Norfolk:
To finish my report from the Springfields Quilt Show, this lovely homage to Jane Austen, made by Bee Barford for the South West Quilters' Chairman's Challenge 2013, "As the saying goes..."
The quilt is titled, "It is a Truth Universally Acknowledged, That a Single Man in Possession of a Good Fortune, Must Be in Want of a Wife", inspired by Austen's coverlet at her home in Chawton, Hampshire. The central swans were made by Bee, who has only been quilting for two years, in Russian tape lace.http://upp.hawkandowl.org/norwich-peregrines/live-peregrine-web-cam-2013/
