And finally, here is the second half of my favourites at the great northern quilt show.
I feel I should say at this point that I am one of Frieda Oxenheims greatest fans, so to see this much of her one  work all in one place was an absolute joy. So here we go, blogger, don't let me down this time.

 every one of these tiny squares had perfectly spaced beads around it- lovely.

I loved the texture in this one.

this was my favourite, so much work in it.

this was my best in show.

After I had finished looking at the quilts, there was time for a bit of shopping.
 On visiting a batik  stand I met a very talented lady called ,Maryke phillips and she showed me her wonderful stitched fabric books,I was completely bowled over by them,I also bought these beautiful steff francis wools, they shouldnt be here, but blogger is being silly AGAIN!


look at this gorgeous batik, and its got a variegated chain stitch all over it, love it, love it love it!

I also bought a metre of this beautiful japanese print, lovely quality,
well, I managed a whole post, thank goodness, I am off to feel sorry for myself now, as I was bitten by a horsefly on my ankle yesterday and its quite sore! nighty night.


  1. love the fact that you buy ready printed fabric, then creative threads, and I know you dye your own too. Add in the buttons and beads and we could be related ;)
    It looked like a lovely show, with more creative quilts than I imagined, I will try to get there next year

  2. Love the japanese fabric! Ouch on the bite! Take antihistermine! It'll help :)


I get very excited when I get a comment. So do please send me a comment, thankyou.
