Another show done and dusted!

After all the hard work and preparation Festival of Quilts is over for another year! I actually feel about 10 years older this morning but I expect that will pass after a good night's sleep! As ever, we had a great time meeting friends old and new on the stand. Laura and Jamie had created lots of new fabric designs especially to launch at the show and once they've printed more stock they'll be available in the fingerprint online store.  That's a serious looking Laura first thing in the morning getting everything ready for another busy day.

The TV you can see waiting to be switched on in the photo above showed a selection of videos to give an idea of what a subscription to DMTV is all about. I hope those of you who signed up during the show really enjoy what we do! We're always happy to receive suggestions for future programmes -  can't promise we know enough about all subjects but we'll do our best to include them if we can!

Don't I look relaxed and happy to be there? It's that swan thing - you know what I mean, serene and calm above water but feet going like the clappers under the surface!

I took very few photos of the quilts at the show but the luminous quality of this winner of the Art Quilt category, sponsored by Madeira caught my eye. It's a diaphanous Pojagi style piece made by Merce Gonzalez Desedamas. If the image is less than sharp it's because the delicate layers were constantly wafting about under the air con!

Laura took advantage of the quiet time before the show opened each day to take more photos so pop over to her blog if you'd like to see more.

Rather a brief post today but I'll be back once the dust settles! Thanks for reading - Linda
