I got to go to England with 4 of my SewWhat quilting buddies in August. We stayed with two lovely ladies (yep, they quilt too) in Lincolnshire...in wee little town that was beautiful, with such sweet people! They took us on a coach with several other quilting groups to spend the day at the quilt show. Everyone was so very nice to us! Because it was a bit of a drive to Birmingham, we had a "comfort stop" of 10 minutes. Let me tell you, all 50 of the ladies on the bus were in and out of the restroom and back on that coach in 10 minutes!! Amazing how fast you can move when you are motivated!! I have never seen such order in all my born days :)
The quilt show definitely set the bar high for any other quilt shows I go to. There were around 2,000 quilts and probably 200 vendors. No, I did not see all the quilts, nor did I get to all the vendors! But I do have some gorgeous pictures to share with you. I killed the battery on my camera part way through the show and had to use my iphone to take pictures for the rest of our trip!
I will be back with more pictures soon. Driving home from my daughter's house tomorrow and I have a customer's quilt on the frame waiting for me.
