  1. I enjoyed looking at all the quilts.Thanks for sharing these images Queenie. I couldn't take my eyes off Fusako Takaido's 'Garden of Dream'...

    1. They are loveable and charming for sure!

  3. Thanks for sharing. It is always interesting to see what is happening elsewhere.

  4. more that I missed! the dragon is such fun, and yes managed to zoom in on the post box and read the details

    1. Do you really think Royal Snail Mail would recommend Email/Facebook andTwitter??!!

  5. The garden of dreams and the Japanese dragon quilts are gorgeous, I am going to have to go to one of these shows myself, there is so much to see!

    1. I warmly recommend going to a quilt show to see the quilts 'in the flesh'. Today I went to see a few Welsh quilts in Stowmarket. One had about 17500 tiny hexagons.
