Quilters' Guild Conference Civic Centre Newcastle-upon-Tyne

The venue

We're staying five nights here in Newcastle though the Conference is only five days as we want to fit in other venues. Thursday was a lovely when we walked round Durham where we met at the university. I also got to the Laing Art Gallery in a break and thought the Sean Scully exhibition could have been a quilt show (though a very clever quilter). When the conference ends this lunchtime we'll go along the Quay and over the iconic Millennium bridge to the Baltic gallery.
 The reproduction of the 1718 silk coverlet was on display and I made one of the pink hourglass blocks.
