Thursday 9th August is the opening day of Festival of Quilts. The largest annual quilt exhibition in the UK is held at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre), Birmingham, slap-bang in the centre of England. Many of my friends are going and I’m excited for Viv who has taken Purple Stitches to FOQ – she’s on Stand H11.
I’ve never been to the Festival but this year I’ve sent a quilt for the first time. ‘Carrie Nation Variation’ is entered in the ‘Traditional Quilt’ category and is number FO68 in the Competition Catalogue. A friend has kindly offered to take a photo so I’ll be able to view my quilt hanging in the gallery 🙂
