International Quilt Festival of Ireland

Oh what fun we had!! On Saturday I was part of the team volunteering at the Irish Patchwork Society stand at the International Quilt Festival of Ireland. We met some wonderful quilters from all around Ireland and from all over the world and we had a laugh together modelling our IPS sashes....wolf whistles all around!!

Claudia Pfeil was one of the international tutors at the festival and the long-arm quilting on this piece was just amazing....mind-blowing really!

This quilt by Ricky Tims was also stunning and stopped me in my tracks.

 Trees by Nancy Sachro, Canada was part of the Yin & Yang exhibition.

I don't know the title of this piece but it was exhibited on the floor, with dappled light on it and was made by a group from Krefeld.

This is just a tiny selection of the amazing pieces on show from 8-10th June at the International Quilt Festival of Ireland at the NUI campus in Galway. If you missed it this year....mark your diary and don't make the mistake of missing it next year!! You will not be disappointed!
