At the moment, I’m not getting to spend much time in my studio making as I seem to be gallivanting to quilt events all the time (life is really tough!). Today the last ever Loch Lomond Quilt Show started and I spent the morning enjoying the huge variety of quilts. In the fact, the variety was so bewildering, I haven’t taken many photos at all! But there is plenty of time as I am going back tomorrow and Friday.
|The Commonwealth Remembers - Coming Home (detail) by Senga Bain|
|Greek Island Seas by Marion Robertson|
Marion Robertson has mixed a number of different types of fabric to make her quilt, which is all hand printed. She is having an exhibition with her sister in Carradale, August Bank Holiday Weekend, which will be well worth a visit. We’re taking our tent.
|Colours of Burano by Frieda Oxenham|
I love Frieda’s work and this year’s entry looked deceptively simple, but her signature beads are still there and the hand quilting is beautiful, deservedly winning the hand quilting award.
|Firelight by Jane Appelbee|
Finally, I just love how Jane Appelbee has manipulated and coloured her fabric to give the idea of flames. It is superbly made.
More to follow from the Loch Lomond Show, when I finally stop talking to people I know (part of the joy of this show is how friendly it is) and hunker down and photograph some quilts.
