Hunters Hill Quilt Show 2016

Hunters Hill Quilt Show 2016

I'm not sure if I'm a super slow blogger these days or if time is moving by at an extra fast pace. Either way I can hardly believe that it's been about 3 weeks since the Hunters Hill Quilter's show.  Well, better late than never, here are some photos. The Hunters Hill Quilter's show is one of my favourite shows for it's mix of colourful quilts. Whether the quilts are traditional, modern, contemporary or in a class of their own this group has a great way with colour and fun and sometimes unexpected fabrics. It's also the one quilt show Mr Daisy always says "Yes!" to seeing with me. It was a perfect sunny winters day. The sunshine made their banner glow, a perfect welcome.  We followed the bunting of quilt blocks... ...to the grand entrance of the Hunters Hill Town Hall. Inside was a hall full of beautiful and wonderful quilts. I didn't take photos due to not knowing the rules about which quilts I can show or not

A Fun day with QuiltNSW

A Fun day with QuiltNSW

QuiltNSW has 4 general meetings a year and although I've been a member for a few years now I've never been to one. It seems I've always had something else on, work, sewing classes, places to be, things to see etc. Well, the stars were aligned this time around and I was able to attend.

I was continually amazed at how many different things were fit into just 5 hours..  First up was a demonstration by Elaine Lye about how she makes her wonderful button necklaces.  You can see Elaine's yellow button necklace in this photo.

Exciting happenings!

It hit me the other day that this year has flown by like a giant mythical bird and it's now August!!  You really know next year is approaching when diaries start appearing. When they do I always watch out for the Quilters Companion Diary to see which wonderful quilt they have chosen for the cover. They make their choice from the hundreds of patterns and projects they publish in their magazines. With lots of beautiful quilts to choose from I don't know how they decide. So you can imagine my surprise and joy to discover they've chosen my quilt  Yoyos a la Mode for  the cover of Quilter's Companion 2017 Diary. Oh my goodness - what an honour!! I keep alternating between happy dancing and pinching myself to see if I'm dreaming. It's certainly makes a bright and happy cover and will hopefully make people smile when they jot down important dates throughout the year.
