We are currently going through a very strong folk art and craft revival in the UK and no more is it in evidence than at the Festival of Quilts. The festival of quilts is a yearly event that takes place at the NEC in Birmingham. Run by Twisted Thread it is an exhibition of open competition quilts. To be honest there is much that I don’t like, but there are also some exquisite pieces of work. The entries are divided into sections such as miniature quilts, traditional, art etc etc. Here are a few that caught my eye. Sometimes I will enjoy a section of a quilt or the materials used, rather than the quilt as a whole. Take a look and let me know what you think.
