The quilt group that I attend made a mini bus trip to the Malvern Autumn Quilt Show last weekend and, whilst it was a long return journey, it was well worth it to see all the fabulous exhibits on display. There were also many excellent retailers in attendance with quite a few bargains available making us all very happy and our purses much lighter.
The skill and artistry that went into many pf the exhibits was astounding and this triple hanging had already won World Best in an American show.
Stephanie Crawford of South Gloucestershire was inspired to create this by a trip she made to China.
The three pieces of Lindisfarne are also made by Stephanie.
Quilts modern and traditional and here are several unusual and varied examples by Val Thomas
I loved this Attic Window by Elma Richmond. She found this perfect panel on a trip to America
Birds of the World by Gail Lowther of West Sussex
This random scrap quilt on one of the trade stands was so vibrant.
Spring's Magic by Val Thomas
Christine Porter of Bristol had so many gems on display
Blooms Birds and Berries was by Jean Coumbe
These patchwork clocks are such a novel idea and look quite simple to make.
Irene Wilcox bought some beautiful silk on her holiday and transformed it into this Goan Beauty.
This huge panel of 1 inch hexagons was so effective and a lovely backdrop to one of the trade stands.
We really enjoyed the visit to Malvern and now look forward to Harrogate at the end of November.
