The article highlights the annual festival of quilts, a special event organized by Creative Exhibitions of London, in Birmingham, England on August 18-21, 2005. According to the author, the event has drawn vendors, hobbyists, professionals, and eager onlookers to an array of workshops, lectures, exhibitions, and competitions. Several keynote speakers have delivered inspiring messages on the importance of art quilts and the significance of embracing vibrant patterns and colors of traditional quilts. American quilter Joan Schulze has taught a weeklong workshop on quilting and has convinced those quilt enthusiasts to secure other venues for the exhibition of their works.
