  1. A great selection of quilts, with great use of colour and repeated patterns. The T shaped one looks like it is a commentary on senseless destruction, the story behind it would be interesting.

  2. I second Jeanette's comment. The exhibition is a different perspective on quilts.

  3. There is so much amazing work there - it feels like it would be a bit overwhelming to be there. Too much to take in all at once!

  4. I love the embroidered flowers. They are so delicate in contrast to other quilts. The first quilt reminds me of hot boiling mud.
