Quilt Heritage at the Knitting & Stitching Show

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being on the Quilters' Guild exhibition stand at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Edinburgh.  It was lovely being able to spend time amongst such beautiful old quilts and seeing visitors' reactions to them.  As I was there on the Sunday, I helped pack them all away, which meant I was able to look at the backs too and get a sense of how they felt (although definitely through white gloves to help conserve the quilts!).  These are some photos of the quilts.

As well as the older quilts, there was fab work by Effie Galletly and the 62 Group amongst others.  The show felt more substantial than last year and it was great to visit and be a part of it.
