Duxford Spring Quilting Show

In beautiful spring weather (!), I went to the Spring Quilting Show with my friend Hannah - about 4 weeks ago now. Snowy picture was taken the night before!




Due to the weather, it wasn't heaving with people, but it was busy and bustling and a great way to spend a morning.

Here are some of the quilts we admired at the show:

Postcard from Devon by Brenda Thomas



Layers of Polperro by Brenda Thomas

Kingsand by Brenda Thomas

Moor to Sea by Brenda Thomas - I loved the layers in this one

Heart of the Alps by Mike Fitchett - I felt this was thematically appropriate for the weather! And just stunning

A series of works by Gillian Travis - we actually spoke to her for a little while about her technique. All of these designs were breathtaking. I think my favourite were the cardigans!






Fireworks by Linda Jackson


Changed My Mind, Again by Lynda Jackson - so many beautiful quilting techniques




Funky Flowers by Roz Rossiter

Radiance Challenge: Tension Challenge by The Longarm Learning Curve

No Bees, No Honey and Don't Just Talk About It, BEE About it by Juliana Teixeira

Feeding on Nectar 1 & 2 by Patricia Marson
