LINQS Inspired by Hockney…..

Tomorrow Molly and I are going down to the Springfield Quilt Show at Spalding for the day to see the LINQS (Lincolnshire Quilters) display of Hockney inspired quilts.  It seems like forever since we signed up to do the LINQS challenge, neither of us having made a quilt previously, so it will be great to see them hanging on show.  I was flattered to see that My Three Tall Trees was chosen to feature on the flyer advertising this weekends event.

We also got a mention in this months edition of Lincolnshire Life magazine after their reporter visited our Hockney Handover event.

Everyone breaths a sigh of relief now the challenge is finally over!

We had a show and tell session in Horncastle and everyone agreed the standard of work was terrific!   The following photos show just a tiny number of the LINQS quilts which will be  embarking  on a national tour with Grosvenor  Shows starting tomorrow.
