Festival of Quilts 2012 - part 2

Traditional Quilts
There were a surprising number of quilts using the hexagon shape this year. Some of the quilts looked quite old (I recognised quite a few fabrics that I still have in my stash from the late 1980's, early 1990's which was fun to see).

Later, by happy happenstance, I discovered that I also had photographed the winners of the Amateur Quilt of the Year, so I obviously had agreed with the judges on this occasion!
