Lutterworth Piecemakers Exhibition

The village hall at Walcott was filled with a huge array of members quilts on the 19th and 20th October. The major element of the show was a collection of the Mystery Quilts members had created during 2013.
It never ceases to amaze me that even when the starting point of quilts is the same design, the results can be so very different!
They were very well received by visitors and a number of the patterns have been sold as a result.

There were also many members own designed quilts and smaller items on show.

An effective and simple use of a Jelly Roll.

This quilt reminds me that a more muted Jelly Roll would make a very effective background for applique and embroidery. I used one for one of my Petra quilts a couple of years ago.

Cakes were available all day and a ready supply of tea and coffee to allow us to discuss all that we had seen, sales table, a Tombola and a raffle completed the show.  A very well attended event. More traditional than most shows I attend.
