I’m just back from my first ever Festival Of Quilts. It was interesting, and was different in many ways from what I had expected. There were some, but not many modern quilts (as I had been warned by some of you on Twitter!) and I didn’t return bursting at the seams with ideas and enthusiasm which had been my expectation.
The highlight for me was a reunion with Kim, the lady who first taught me to quilt in Canada 5 years ago, but other than that I can honestly (and somewhat controversially) say that I feel I could garner the same amount of ideas and inspiration from an afternoon surfing the online quilting community.
