The Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate 2015

The Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate is one of my favourite shows as it is 'do able in a day' and there are some great Yorkshire prices & good old Yorkshire hospitality.

This year however is different for me as I am attending the show as an exhibitor and not as a visitor.

Here is me small stand overflowing with the massive choice of extra wide fabrics which I now have in stock and in my online store too.

Last year I was very lucky and won the cot quilt section at this show, so I decided that I should still try and support the competition by entering again.

My cot quilt - Born in the USA won second place this time, giving way a perfect hand quilted one by Andrea Stracke.
