May to June

I don’t know what happen on May. I made a quilt and submitted it and made a cot quilt too. I had two evening class since April and while they are almost over I have got two more which runs until end of June. For me, May just flew past.

On one quiet week, I went up to Dublin to see two quilt exhibition. One is Modern quilter’s and the other is a joint exhibition of Irish Patchwork Society and Northern Ireland Patchwork Guild. Modern quilter’s exhibition is held at St. Patrick’s Hospital and runs until 23rd of June. Here are some photos. I missed the first exhibition two years ago and I don’t know if the numbers are down but I was hoping to see more modern quilts and for that reason I was bit disappointed( there are more than in photos by the way) .modern exhibition 01modern exhibition 02After that, I went other side of Dublin to see Hands Across Border exhibition which held quilts from North and South of Ireland. Now they are all moved to Island Arts Centre, Lisburn and there until the end of June. The theme for this exhibition is “Aurora” and they are very colourful!
