Farnham

Four of us made the trip to Farnham today but later than usual and having lunch at a pub just outside the town before making our way to the venue and taking advantage of early arrivals leaving parking spaces vacant and the cheaper afternoon entry rate. None of us bought hugely and I enjoyed meeting up with old friends, checking out the demonstrations and looking at the quilt displays as all the local groups mount a presence though the main reason for the event is quilt shops selling off surplus stock more cheaply.
I took a few picures of quilts that caught my eye:
I love the simplicity of this.

General view

Angela Fitzgerald: Scrappy Wild Flowers
I saw an old quilt of this pattern  in a display
of Patricia Cox's collection. The pattern
is included in a book she wrote.

Detail

Red White and Blue by Elizabeth Hoad. I like
the simplicity.

Detail of Sue Goad's MQ Sampler, a pattern I like.

Untitled by Anne Gallagher. This piece uses Janet Clare fabrics to great effect.

Ruth French: Strawberries and Cream

Hi Mary,
Looks like a good visit! Love seeing those quilts especially the appliqué one.
I'm sure my friend (Maidstone) would have loved to go to it but she is visiting her Mother in Slovenia.
I'm excited to be going on Saturday to Standfast & Barracks (Lancaster) reopening (after the floods) to get the bargain Liberty fabric for my daughter's wedding gift quilt. Can't wait to get it going.
