Festival of Quilts 2016

The Festival of Quilts has just finished and I have so enjoyed it!  There are so many different aspects to it.  The British Guild exhibit, modern quilts, special displays by Russian, Korean and Japanese quilt artists, Claire Benn, SAQA, EQA.......  And lots of vendors!  And a section where teachers have a small booth to sell their books and kits and show their work. 

Below are some of the first prize winners.  
Immediately below is a piece by Laura Kemshall which is a photograph that is about 30x70" (total guess on my part) which has been quilted with words and patterns. Detail in the picture below.
