Quilts UK

We did a brief write up on our visit to Quilts UK on the site ( but there were just so many amazing quilts that caught our eye so we decide to show case a few of them here for you all to enjoy.  First of all though please let me say that it was hard to do justice to these quilts with just a photo, the depth of colours and intricacies of the designs were absolutely stunning!  If you didn't make it this time i'd strongly recommend visitinng the autumn show.

The Japanese ones were my personal favourites too, and they had lovely Japanese fabrics there - but I couldn't afford any unfortunetly. Maybe next year
