Folksy Friday - The Beauty of the Handmade Quilt

I'm currently working at this year's Festival of Quilts, the largest quilt show in Europe. As well as the hundreds of stands (over 300) and shopping opportunites, daily workshops and demonstrations, there is always a beautiful display of quilts, many of which are entered into the show's competition. Unfortunately, it's rare that I actually get time to see many of the beautiful makes on display, so before I set off, I thought I would put together a collection of my favourite handmade quilts available to buy on Folksy...

1. Hand Printed Quilt Names Saffron – Betsy Badge - £745
2. Modern Patchwork Quilt in Bright and Grey – Nostalgia Knits - £300
3. Patchwork Quilt in Scottie Dogs - Bee and Thistle - £180
4. A Wisdom of Owls - Mother Goose Quilting - £78
5. Modern Rainbow & Unicorn Quilt - Cake Card Cloth - £600
6. Little Centre Square Red Quilt - Vintage and Floral - £90
7. Fox in the Nine Patch Quilt - Sewmotion £210
8. A Day at the Spa Quilt Alessandra Handmade Creations - £215
9. Quishion - a Patchwork Quilt in a Cushion - Jane's P Ragges - £200

These beautiful handmade items have been made by some of the very talented sellers on Folksy - the online marketplace for modern British craft - go and explore their shops - you may find that perfect gift you won't find anywhere else!
