Bristol Quilters celebrated 35 years since they formed and members made quilts on the theme ‘Bristol’




















This was a challenge set by Stephanie Crawford when she was chair.

A picture was given to the first person in the group, they interpreted it and then gave the picture back to Stephanie and passed their quilt on to the second person who interpreted that and then passed the first quilt back to Stephanie and their quilt on to the next person, and so the challenge continued.  There were five people in each group.
