East Kent Guild Birthday Party

My effort
Every October quilters in our area gather to celebrate the Guild birthday in Aldington Village Hall. A feature of this one was a stash  sale of lovely fabric collected by a lady in the last ten years of her life when she no longer sewed but continued to receive a pack from the US Fat quarter shop every fortnight. It has been given to Region 2 of the Guild. In addition we made red and white house blocks for charity quilts in the morning. Then Marion Drake displayed part of her antique quilt collection, truly a visual feast. 
It was a super day - the best yet!
Lots of pieces

An English frame quilt; I should
like to collect and to make
one of these.
Just wide strips of densely patterned fabric but I
love it!

Lastly Show and Tell by attendees and birthday cake!
