Knitting and Stitching Show: Quilts

There were masses of wonderful quilts on display at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show. I only had time to do a quick whizz round the Stands in the early morning before the general public arrived. Here are a few that particualrly caught my eye.

    I love the way that down the ages women have made objects which are beautiful and practical out of nearly nothing – scraps and recycled bits. And in the process made art works as lovely as any painting. I’m not sure about shells and buttons on a cushion cover – wouldn’t they dig in when you sit on it or lean against it? But as pieces of art they are stunning.

    • Old cushion covers were used as the basis for the piece – I don’t think they were intended to be used as cushions any more – but as pieces of wall art. I agree – sitting on shells and buttons wouldn’t be very comfortable. πŸ™‚
