My Good Self - Lu Summers - Lupin
Birmingham NEC Festival of Quilts 2011
What a great day out!
My head, heart and throat were swollen from talking and thinking and seeing...
Above is Lu Summers fantastic bright quilt.
There were so many styles and disciplines and ideas. I took but a few photos to share.
Dynamic blocks of colour and gold with tiny tiny complicated quilting.
Always beautiful, the nostalgic quilts... the above was full of detailed embroidery.
A superb knitted quilt that was cleverly constructed so as not to lose it's shape or hang oddly (due to how heavy wool can get) This had lots of attention.
Emphemera and notions. Nostalgia and haberdashery.
Blocks and strips of shades and tones. Mixed hand quilting and machine quilting.
Tiny weeny complicated quilted Art.
Rabbit... Hazel....Watership Down???
Me singing "Bright Eyes..... burning like Fire......"
