Kekfesto feast quilt: Just before I went on holiday to Hungary, I discovered kekfesto indigo dyed fabrics in a magazine article. Imagine my pleasure when we found a museum on the whole subject, and then a shop selling some of these wonderful designs. I came home and made a quilt, and then for the second coincidence I found out that there was going to be an exhibition in Hungary for kekfesto quilts the following year. So I entered mine and had the pleasure of visiting Hungary again seeing it hanging in the exhibition. It is a fascinating and dying (sorry about the pun) art and the Society out there is desperately trying to keep it going. My design is based on Barbara Chainey’s idea of ‘Fast quilts from fat quarters’ – a really lovely book to have in one’s library. 40 x 40 inches. £80
