The Queen Bee Quilters are holding a quilt show this weekend. The theme was a Stitch in Time. I just had to go.
The show began with
A display of a Stitch through time! Then it was onto the quilts. Here are my favourites.
Sammy Snail , story book, From a pattern by Jenny Haskins and stitched by Margaret Peel
Stitched by Mariola Leeman, her first quilt made for her son who loves bright colours and chillis.
This was a late entry so I can’t remember who stitched it but I recall it was made for a granddaughter. Now what girl would not love this?
Springtime, stitched by Liz Petherick from a pattern bought in New Zealand.
Beside the Sea stitched by a group called Creative Stitchers
Stitched by Sarah Slater from a pattern by Lynette Anderson
I loved the words in the middle.
Stitched by Judith Clarke for her grandson
Stitched by Chris Swales, design by Patchwork Chicks and fabric by Lynette Anderson
Stitched by Jane Snoxell, pattern by Lynette Anderson. Are you spotting a theme here?

Now of course there were traders and stalls and of course I made some purchases. Fabric and buttons. I will share those another day. The traders all picked quilts for an award from each of them and the visitors also got to choose their favourite, and the one with the most votes will get the visitors award. So which one did I pick?
Do you wish you could go, well if you can get to Whitby North Yorkshire, it is open on Sunday too.
Meantime let me leave you with these Christms trees. Here you got to choose your favourite and put coins in the bag next to it to signify a winner. All money to charity. And the winner would be the one with the most coins, not the one with the highest value. Time to empty your pockets of pennies…..
And although I love those cats, my money went in the bag next to it, all those decoartions were patchwork and the panel was quilted.
And the quilt I choose was the chilli inspired one. Loved the colours, that it was practical and was for her son. The snail very nearly had it though.
One great day out!
