The Great Northern Quilt Show

is where I've been today.

Mrs PennyPot and I had a lovely day there. We saw some amazing quilts, some "interesting" quilts and some that you look at and ask "why". No doubt you want to see all my photos? OK, here they are............

...........Did you enjoy that? I'm really sorry folks, but I forgot my camera. We did have to wonder at the judges reasons sometimes for awarding the ribbons as they did. It seemed to me that you could throw together a top, add some gold lame of a couple of sequins and win, but some of the most amazingly executed quilts which were completely traditional did not win anything. I wish we could see the judges' comments, perhaps I'd understand better then.

I did see the quilt Ms QuiltingProlifically entered. It's called Basket Case and you can see it on her blog here.

Sadly, I noticed there were less traders again this year, with a number of my favourites missing, but on the plus side there were also a couple of traders there who have not been in the past. I obviously did do a little shopping while I was there and I'll show you what I bought tomorrow.

I'm off now to put my poor, aching feet up.


  1. No camera? What were you thinking? :)

    Can't wait to see what came home with you.

  2. I'm missing the pictures, but I can't wait to see what jumped into your arms begging to be brought home.

  3. I remember after your visit in 2008 you were worried about the future of the show - do you think in general things picked up this year?

  4. No camera. Been there and done that.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the show even though it wasn't as good as before.
    I think that people save up for the large shows and the smaller shows suffer. I go to the Exeter Show in Spring and that is getting smaller and smaller each year.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  5. Oh nooo! no camera! Done that too, they should sell those disposable camera's and make a killing! I hope I didn't dissapoint, did you see my other one too? Hope the feet recover for the next one! Can't wait to see what you just HAD to have! LOL

  6. Instead of answering your comments separately, I'm going to do so in a post this evening I think.


I love to receive your comments, so please do leave them and wherever possible I will reply to you by email.
