Festival of Quilts

I spent the weekend at the Festival of Quilts show. I'd never entered anything in the show before (despite saying every year to myself that I'd enter something the next year!), but this year I had one as part of a group quilt entry.
Burren Rocks - my panel is the 3rd from the left.

My favourite two exhibitions at the show was Pauline Burbridge's and the European Art Quilt one - no photo's were allowed though.

I also had an entry selected for the EQA "Crossroads" Exhibit. I didn't know my piece was selected until I saw the exhibit, so that was a nice surprise. Here's the Irish exhibit of the "Crossroads" quilts.

I now have loads of ideas about new quilts to make (and lots of new fabric too), but I really have to finish at least one UFO before I let myself start a new one! The UFO pile is growing bigger week by week....

Some of my favourite quilts at FoQ this year were these ones:
