what a week already, but I really wanted to post about the weekend just past, our local quilting group, which meets every Thursday (from about 10am - 3pm ish - in fact just got back from) hosted a country day, it was fantabulous!!
This sort of thing happens quite frequently in country areas, so city girls eat ya heart out!!!
ladies traveled in cars from far afield, to share our day
and see our marvellous quilts on display
and take part in our quilt challenge, the theme was "reflections of McKenzie" (McKenzie being the district)
and listen to Sue Spigel our guest speaker, you can see her work here, and here,
and people browsed and bought at the merchant stalls, and looked at our many quilts on display, these were all made by our very own quilt group, and I must say, I was blown away at the variety of work, you don't realise what a collection of wonderful quilts there is until they are all gathered together...
this one shows that you do not need to keep with pastels for these Beatrix Potter panels,
and I am not sure that I might have used batiks for this traditional design, but it works well and looks stunning!
as do these...
and I love the way that this pinwheel looks...
It sure was a fun day!!
