|total impulse buy!|
And so to the quilts.... we were both totally underwhelmed by the quilts this year. There was no "wow" moment and I still struggle with the categories some quilts end up in. I understand that the quilter chooses the category to submit to but some of the most traditional looking ones were in the Contemporary section and vice versa. There were loads of lone star quilts in every section. It's just confusing. Lovely Clare went yesterday for the first time and I think was similarly underwhelmed. It was difficult to find something that fired inspiration into the soul. Other than seeing the fabulous Tula Pink of course and saying hi to Charlotte but being too shy to say much else and scarpering down an aisle instead. I enjoyed watching some really bad customer service and some really good stuff too. Oh and saving a young girl's foot from the claws of an old biddy's trolley bag.
Anyway here are my pick of the best...
