We had the pleasure of spending a few days at the show – admiring quilts, stroking fabrics and meeting up with all of our quilty pals.

Go with the Flow by Maria Coxon

We loved the way that these V&Co Ombre Metallic fabrics flowed in Maria Coxon’s rainbow Bargello design.

Past Love Patchwork & Quilting contributor Lisa’s vibrant blue and orange quilt caught our eyes as we wondered past the competition quilts!

Who can resist Violet Craft’s clever FPP cow pattern!? Teresa Summerfield combined cotton and linen for a textured effect.

We’ve loved seeing Kitty Wilkin’s Tiny Sampler blocks pop up on our Instagram feeds this year – they’re even tinier than you’d expect in real life!
