The Scottish Quilt Championships 2012

We happened to be in Edinburgh while the Scottish Quilt Championships was on. We went to see what the quilts were like. They were gorgeous and many were hand quilted.
This is the Grand Champion.

Most of the fabric is the same as we can buy in Australia but did find some different fabrics.
