Beckenham Quilters exhibition

Spent a wonderful Saturday morning at this quilt show in South East London. I have a friend, Maxine, who is a member and it is always good to go and see her work
This is her contribution to the group's challenge to make a small quilt based on colour shade cards. As you can see she is injected three D pieces into the Delectable Mountains block. Sorry about the picture but it was at ground level. The flashes of different colour and dimension really brought this to life.

Here are some other quilts I saw
This was a wonderful Kantha quilted piece by Wendy Parke

A fantastic trilogy of picture on Art Deco theme by Linda Mercer

I just loved these januty boats by Jean Bagley

This was done by  five artists: (from left to right) Janet Tibbalds, Chris Hughes, Bonnie Foster, Sandra Tait and Alison Kirkby. The title was Five by Five

I loved this wool applique hanging by Rita Shilling.

Also the group had done a workshop with Edith Morris on her kaleidoscope technique. Once again all the quilts show so well how different fabrics can produce totally different results. Here are one or two examples

I love the whole show - great coffee and marvellous homemade cakes as well as a few traders. My ideal way of spending a Saturday morning.

Happy quilting
