I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Quilts UK -Malvern May 2011

Phew!! I was so glad that the two quilts that went off to Malvern have arrived home safely today.

And I am pleased to report that the red and white Hawaiian quilt Kaui o na Molokama was awarded a Judge's Merit and the Award for Hand Applique.

And the New Allendale Quilt was awarded a Judges Merit and the Award for Hand Quilting. I am so glad that two very traditional quilts won prizes - sometimes I think they get forgotten among the more modern and more exciting quilts....

But as I did not attend the show in person, I can't say any more! Unfortunately, Malvern is a 200-mile, four hour drive away from Suffolk. The judges marking sheets (always interesting to view) were not enclosed (as with the FOQ entries) - and no catalog either. I would like to have seen the other quilts - perhaps one day....


  1. Maybe someone with a blog has photos? Congrats on the ribbions. I wonder how many of the quilts in the show were hand quilted?

    Your hand work is lovely.

  2. Congratulations Pippa! Two very well deserved awards and as you said it's really good that the work in traditional quilts is recognised in the prizegiving at shows.

  3. Congratulations (again) for your wonderful success at Malvern, Pippa! You really deserve the ribbons.

  4. Congratulations!


  5. Give me traditional in any shape or form anytime. Well deserved win Pippa. Pretty sure you wouldn't get judges marking sheets. I have exhibited and won a couple of things in the past and haven't received the judging sheets unlike like the FOQ who do give them to you. I didn't make Malvern this year so I hope you have entered them in the FOQ so I can see them there.
