One of the advantages of life on the mainland is there is always some interesting textile exhibition going on and as more and more people is coming to the shop, we’re finding out about them in time. The latest one we went to this weekend is Quilter’s Guild – Region 8 exhibition at Layer Marney Tower near Colchester.
The place it’s worth the visit on it’s own on a lovely sunny day, there are animals for children to stroke, lovely garden and much more. We unfortunately came on very rainy day, but still enjoyed the climbing the tower and the wet views.
The exhibition was in the wonderful barn which is still being used for the animals on site and the quilts fitted into the surrounding beautifully.
Here is a little slide show of other really nice work by members of the Quilter’s Guild.
Another of my favourite quilts was this miniature which was part of the model of the barn preserved behind the glass. We spend quite a bit of time in front of it with Jasmine, going through all the professions presented by little people. This lady sitting there and quilting was quite impressive. And look at the corn dollies as well. It was really well made.
If you live in the area, the exhibition is on until Thursday 30th July 2015.
