I was lucky enough to exhibit as part of the graduate show case at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC. I want to say thank you to everyone who visited my stand, I meet some lovely, friendly inspiring people and I hope you all stay in touch and keep visiting my blog.
I was surprised at the response to my work, as it is mainly paper I thought I would be met with skepticism but instead people were intrigued and amazed by what I’d created. I was glad people could see the link between my work and quilting, through the geometry, tessellations and shapes and patterns I create.
It was great to meet the other extremely talented graduates that were part of the showcase, and who also kept me sane when the day seemed too long ,

As I don’t live far from the NEC I had alot of help from my family and my best mate Jess, so a big thank you to all the Tubbs and Miss Lewis, I couldnt have done it with out your help and it wouldn’t have been half as fun.
