A busy couple of days, Saturday with the help of Delyth & Catherine and lots of other lovely ladies, we had a small exhibition of quilts at the Makeit Lace Day at St Ives, all the quilts were made by members of the Quilters Guild Region 9  - there was some lovely work and although the show was predominately lace makers, they were well received and admired by all the people that came to the show.  We also ran a tombola to raise funds for Region 9 and we did so well.  An enormous thank you to everyone that kindly donated items for the tombola we couldn't have done it without your support.  An enormous thank to Delyth and Catherine for all their work it was great.
 A selection of the quilts - they were all superb.

 Look at these miniatures aren't they lovely.

Then I was lucky enough to get to Chilford and it was a lovely display there.  I like Chilford it is so easy to get to from Peterborough.  I was forced to spend a little bit of money and treat myself - rude not to have done so.

I had to take this photo for Angela as she adores poppies - it was called Flanders Field and is beautiful.
I loved this quilt - this was just a small section - all the beads - the time and effort that went into it.
So now I have to do some sewing finish some of the quilts that I have not completed yet - I have made one Christmas Present, but I have just started my Christmas Cards and they will keep me out of mischief for a while I think.


  1. I loved Chilford too - and found myself drawn to that beaded beauty you photographed. Well done getting it all done for Region 9 - I can't imagine where you find the time!!!

  2. Fabulous quilts Pam, thanks for showing them :-) I enjoyed Chilford too. Frieda Oxenham's quilts were amazing, so much work with all the little stitches and beads.
