Today was the penultimate day for Quiltfest at the Pavilion gallery. We had far more visitors than yesterday and lots of interest in patchwork and quilting. The photo above is me with some of today's stewards - Sue Horder (Quiltfest's webmaster & Chester Ps & Qs), Maureen Poole(Wrexham Quilting Circle) and Gill Young (Chester Ps & Qs). Maureen is wearing her Owl waistcoat that featured in 'Compendium of Quilting Techniques', while Gill & Maureen between them provided the inspirational finished projects for the Japanese folded patchwork section in that book. Angela Jefferies (far right above), from Llangollen Quilters who exhibited in the foyer on Sunday, came to see us again - it looks like their group will have a few new members soon. It's great to meet a lot of people who want to get into quilting and are enthused by seeing our work.
Here's a few general views of the gallery. I will post photos of individual quilts later - need to get photos of all the quilts in the gallery tomorrow. The Cwilt Cymru exhibition in the Museum continues until Tuesday afternoon, and the exhibition of Japanese sashiko quilts will open there on Thursday.
