At last... a post featuring the fantastic quilts created by friends and family of Somerset Patchwork. The girls have worked very hard over the past few months and with a little prodding from me, met their deadlines and created the most amazing display of their very own Mrs Billings quilts. There were close replicas to my block of the month quilt, variations with individual designs and quilts inspired by the original 1790's English quilt. There were traditional colour choices, soft feminine hues and bold dramatic fabrics.
The combined result was a feast for the eyes!
If you were unable to attend and see them for yourself, please sit back and enjoy the following photos...
