Minster in Thanet - Quiltshow

If you have never been before, Minster in Thanet is a delightful village. A wonderful church here in which the Quilt show this weekend is being held.



You receive a warm welcome even outside with an Abbey Patcher's Quilt..

as well as quilts inside in every nook and cranny....

They were all truly wonderful and there were too many to mention (or post) which were all my favourites !

One in particular stood out through it's age. It was made by the participants' mother and aunts during the years 1912 - 1915, mostly by oil lamp or candle light. The tiny stitches and colourway are exquisite:


Another one blending pastel colours with artistry,



and this one, another personal favourite ! Just the sort of combination I am currently into !!


There is also an excellent fabric corner with something to buy for everyone. Doesn't your mouth just water ??? (I know it's not cakes... same effect though !!)


There is one more day of showing left. Hurry to Minster on the Bank Holiday Monday from 10 till 4.30 !!
