This quilt was designed by Lee Brown but made by Chalybeate Quilt Group, "Kamon".
I do love japanese inspired quilts, and their simple lines, and sashiko embroidery.
This is "Quilt in a day...yeah..right (2005) by Lee Brown. Even if it took more than a day, the result is really nice.
A bit of humour, by Lee Brown "Blythe Spirit", panels and figures hand dyed.
I loved the perspective achieved by this quilt, made by Lee Brown, again, called "Byzantine", with silk, calico, and organdie.
I will spare you any more. I had a fantastic time, bought lots of fabric. The prices were down probably because of the economic crisis, so I helped support fabric merchants.
And now I need to get down to doing some actual sewing, in addition to the hand quilting that I keep for the evenings.

I took my camera and am happy to share with you all the treasures I have seen. And this time I even have the names of the authors of owners for antique quilts (yes there were antiques, how lucky ).
This is an old quilt called "Old Strippy" and owned by Joan Nuttall, from Chipping Norton, Oxon. She didn't know the origin of this quilt.Just look at the handy work below.
This quilt was made by Pam and Nicky Lintott, from Dorking Surrey, who own the shop "The Quilt Room" to illustrate the book Jelly Roll Quilts. It is called Pandora's Box.
And another one made by the same for the book, it is called "Garden Trellis". The fabric is from Garden Design by Moda.
Another one in the same series, they called it "Bars of Gold" but this pattern is sometimes called Stacked Coins or Chinese Coins. So simple but so effective.
This quilt is called "Williamsburg (2)" and was made in 2008 by Lee Brown from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, from the name of the collection of fabrics by Windham.
I liked the idea of keeping the fabric. It is sometimes difficult to cut a piece you love.
I have more photos but feel this post is long enough, so will publish the rest later.
