I loved this for the fantastic use of colour and stitch, although the peacock’s neck does disappear a little Brenda Wroe ‘My Fine Feathered Friend’

Liz Jones ‘Moving On’ is a masterpiece of simplicity, excellent colour and interesting fabrics – it uses woven fabrics and I think felt

Hanging in the Guild’s ‘Forty Years’ gallery was this fantastic wholecloth from the 1930s ‘Claridge’s Peach Wholecloth Quilt’ featuring Welsh motifs and part of a drive to prevent hand quilting from dying out.

Pippa Wardman’s ‘Taj Mahal At Sunset’ rightly received lots of praise and an award. The imagery and stitch were fantastic. I have one niggle though – that band of yellow unbalances the quilt as it is too strong, it either needed to be lighter in colour or a narrower band of saturated yellow.
