Quay Quilters .. a picture post

Yesterday I popped into the annual exhibition of Quay Quilters – the Kingsbridge-based quilting club – in my lunch break.  The quilts on display were wonderful!  I particularly loved the picture quilts … and thought you might like to see a few of them too..

A more traditional design – wonderful colour choices …
Scary looking pigeons – and even the bunting is quilted!
Wonderful textile art – reminds me of all the creeks and inlets around here where the water becomes perfectly still on the changing of the tide ..
And finally … a wonderful quilted map. Shows the head of the estuary where I walk alongside on my way to work – and the first grey building – with the red creeper is Quay House where our offices are … love it!
I’d also like to say a bit “thank you” to everyone who’s sent in hints and tips – I am overwhelmed by your generosity in responding.  I’ll keep the form up until the end of the month (it’s on the top of the right hand sidebar) and then I’ll start to collate everything into some sort of order so we can all enjoy the results.  So if you have a good hint or tip – maybe passed on by your granny, or something a friend told you or you found somewhere else, then don’t hesitate – please let me know so we can share them with each other.

I love the picture map! It's so quaint and exactly what I'd hang in my home. 🙂
Lots of talent in that show, Helen!
