Colourful scenes, pretty patterns and bright borders filled Fleggburgh Village Hall when it played host to an exhibition of quilts.
Around 100 of the comfy covers were put on display by the Pennyloaf Patchers, a group of crafty women who meet every fortnight to stitch, embroider and embellish.
Every two years members put their handiwork on show to help raise money for charity and the display over the weekend raised just under £800 for the East Coast Hospice.
Hundreds of visitors flocked into the hall to marvel at their intricate designs, enjoy a cup of tea and learn more about the craft.
Maureen Scott, the group's treasurer, said: 'It's very addictive, the feel and touch of the material is very tactile and you just have to see the magical colours and range of fabrics and you're inspired.
