Quiltessential at Festival of Quilts

Once again we are trading at Festival of Quilts at the NEC from 16-19 August. Our stand, C47, is full of our latest quilt designs and lots of new fabric.
We have entered a quilt in the 2 person category for the first time this year and are proud to announce that it has been awarded a 'Highly Commended'.
It was designed 7 years ago by Darren at the same time he designed our logo but we have only just got round to making it. It is called Logo-Rhythmic. Darren did the design, drew the foundation templates, cut virtually all of the fabric and pieced half of the blocks. Ann made the other half of the blocks, joined all the blocks and did all the quilting and binding. She had to get up early every day for a week to quilt it in good daylight because she couldn't quilt black on black in artificial light in the evening after work.
She said never again whilst she was doing it but now it has had some success she is reconsidering her view!
See if you can guess which of the 4 quilts below is ours!
