Quilting Time!

This cuckoo clock was on the wall at the NEC last week and it was very cleverly made with a mouse on the top left which you cannot see in this photo from the front.  The reason I loved it was because I often place a pink sugar mouse on my kitchen clock at Christmas on the top left too.

I did photograph some of the quilts on show but it was one of those days when my new camera phone and I did not agree.  Some shots worked and others did not and I don't want to post up inferior photos so next time I go to the Festival of Quilts I will take a camera......

I was not helped by the placement of some of the winning quilts in a corridor which was the main thorough fare of the show mind. Every time I tried to line up a shot it was pandemonium and there was not enough space to step back to get the quilts in.  I saw one woman contorting herself with her head actually leaning against a winning quilt trying to line up a shot of a quilt on the opposite wall.

I expect some professionals managed to photograph them but I failed.

The clock was lovely and would fit perfectly in a nursery. I agree about the placing of the quilts it was so difficult to photograph them, or even just to stand and look at them as you say it was the main walk through. Lots of moaning at stewards about it. But despite all that I really enjoyed my first visit to FOQ, who knows next time we may even meet!

Yes I enjoyed it too and bought some new tools. I will make a note for next year that we must meet up Miriam, that would be lovely:-)
