Malvern Autumn Quilt Show 2016

First just a reminder that we have a Christmas Workshop on Wednesday so remember to bring your fabrics and sewing machines. 
(The club's machine is booked by Val.)
Despite the length of the journey home and Marj feeling unwell as we set off home, we all enjoyed another great mini bus trip to yet another super show. This time it was to Malvern and it was a joy to see the glorious colours of Autumn on the route especially as Hugh our driver had to take us off the motorway due to traffic blocks. 
Next trip is the last Friday in November and it will be at the super venue of the Royal Pavilion in the centre of Harrogate. The show is on but the shops are at close reach if anyone wants to get a taste of Christmas with the festive lights and a bit of seasonal shopping in the lovely town centre.

Here's a taster of some of the quilts at Malvern but the are lots more if you click HERE and see my full post of them. 
How about this Attic Window above? Isn't it the perfect panel that Elma Richmond managed to find on a trip to America? It's inspiring and is quite an easy quilt to make with a great youtube instruction video from the Missouri Star Quilt Co blog .

This, below, is another really simple quilt which was on a trade stand. It makes a big impact by use of vibrant colours but it is made from random scraps. The multi fabric of the sashing really pull it together visually.
