The majority of the quilts and activities were in a huge barn, but there were plenty of things to look at outside including a treasure hunt, a walk through the bluebell woods and alpacas!
Cakes on quilts - it doesn't get much better than this!!
Bet you can't spot the cement mixer!
Feeling brave... the pony, not the girls!
I got to have a quick chat with Mandy, whose union jack quilt pattern is sitting in my 'to do' pile awaiting the perfect fabric, and she signed a copy of her new book for me too.
The quilts were predominantly traditional in style and colour, not the 'modern bright stuff' that Mandy described mine as, but I have committed some ideas to memory and film! It's always good to see things that perhaps I wouldn't ever make, but still inspire me to do more.
Oh did I mention the shopping? Only 4 FQs, two Hideaway, an Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and a mystery, does anyone recognise the second one down?
If you get the chance tomorrow I definitely recommend it! Thank you Mandy and your team for organising such a lovely day out.
