Across the Pond


Just yesterday we heard about another quilting friend who’s making a pilgrimage to the UK this summer. She’ll probably see a few palaces and cathedrals, but her main destination is the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in August. Now in its ninth year, it’s become the biggest quilt show in Europe. More than 1,000 competition quilts and 200 vendors. Wow.

TQL readers, did, however, get to go to England vicariously in the August issue. We just didn’t have enough space in the magazine for all the wonderful photos Christine Porter sent us, so here they are. Let’s just pop back across the pond and look at quilts for a few more minutes…
