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!

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

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.
