Patchwork Perfection!

Back in May I caught the end of Midsomer Quilting's Patchwork and Quilting Exhibition at Radstock Museum (which is a bit of an unexpected gem and well worth a visit!). I was blown away by the incredible skill of the various quilters, and spent a long time looking around and taking photographs. So many, in fact, that I can only show a few of my favourites in this post-I took over a hundred pictures!

I will let the photos speak for themselves, but this really was a stunningly beautiful exhibition, which I am so glad I saw. 

 Incredible tiny hexagons quilt (with my tiny hand for scale!): "Hexagonals" by Juliet Nelmes.

 Quilted scenes (clockwise from left): Narrow Outlook by Lorraine Bourne, detail from Genoeg Ganzen by Kathryn Chambers, Memories of Venice by Sandra Higham.

Antique quilts (bottom right is Great Grandmother's Quilt, lent by Jane Taylor-Holbrook).

 "Morris Dance", William Morris inspired quilt by Catherine Millar.

Architecture and textures quilts: "Within Four Walls" by Sandra Meech-featuring the Tate Britain, the Cruciform building, Brugge canal views and Roman fort remains.
