Festival of Quilts - Dyed beauties

I am not a great photographer and not every photo I took is clear enough to upload but here are some of my favorite quilts made hand dyed fabric.  I didn't write down all the information, I simply photographed the number of each piece and tallied the info from the show catalogue, which I remembered to bring home :)

This one is by Dorita Smith, Burgess Hill,  and is titled  'Wonky log cabin'. Made from Kola Nut and Indigo dyed fabrics. 

Delia Cecil, Leiston.  'Indigo Sunrise'
Indigo dyed, free machine embroidery, free machine quilting, hand stitch, machine applique, indigo dyed.  Quilt as you go.

Elly van Steenbeek, Veenendaal 'School Memories'
Cottin, paper, stamps, voile.

Sue Payne, Vale. 'Line over Matter'
Hand dyed Indigo batik on calico.

Susan Jones, Midhurst,  'Reflections'
Piecing, appliques, fabric manipulations and machine quilting using hand dyed fabrics.

Jacqueline Heinz, Germany 'Rosebridge'

The 'Reflections' one grabbed me too and you're right about that quilting. There were so many fabulous quilts there it's impossible to remember everything you've seen. It was good to see you yesterday however briefly :-)

All these quilts and the ones on your earlier post are quite amazing. The standard of workmanship seems to get higher each year.
