~*~ Alington House Quilters,Durham ~*~



Drove across to Durham this morning for a super exhibition by a local group.Quite by chance I met up with Dawn outside and we went round the show together.
Upstairs there was a room dedicated to Amy Emms and some of her original Durham quilting projects and hand-drawn templates.
My favourite quilt of the show was an outstanding Sampler Quilt,the workmanship was awesome





Retail therapy was provided by The Fat Quarters,Kim had set out a beautiful array of fabrics, books ,notions etc.Just time for tea and fairy cakes served in funky pyrex!!

Hi Helen, I made it over to Allington House after 3pm today for a quick visit - and of course a bit of retail therapy with Kim for myself too! I really loved the postage stamp quilts - I may even get round to posting some pictures of them on my blog sometime!!! I'm sorry we didn't get the chance to meet up - we will have to arrange something soon. Lucy
