The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham 2017 - Part Two

The first day at the Festival I spent going through the exhibition, at the end of that day my head felt like a huge bubble filled with quilt images. So glad that my camera did not feel that way and willingly kept all the pictures I took.

I posted the pictures of the following categories in Part One: Art Quilts, Contemporary  Quilts, Group Quilts and Quilt Creations. If you want to see them, go to Part One.

Kumoko Frydl, a Japanese quilt artist had her own exhibition "Miniature Art, Grand Designs", showing lots of Miniature Quilts, all amazingly small, precise and delicate. Please be aware that these quilts start from 25 to 40 cm only - imagine all this quilting on such a small fabric surface!
