The Great Northern Quilt Show 2014 at Harrogate

Well I am just back after a great day at The Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate Show Ground. It was rather busy today, but the stand holders said yesterday was busier.
This year again, the show has got bigger. There are more stalls and more quilts! The workshop area which used to be at the bottom end has now been moved into another block.

Anyway, here are some quilts.....
