Wow look at all these quilts that are gathering in the spare room waiting to be hung on Saturday, thanks heaps to their owners who have kindly lent them to me to hang in my Annual Outdoor Quilt Airing and Biggest Morning tea this Saturday May 10

Preparations under way

Geoffrey has been out bright and early this morning slashing the paddock in preparations for the Quilt Airing and Biggest Morning Tea this Saturday. The day starts at 10 am with our Guest speaker from the Cancer Council Marilyn Curtis speaking around 11am. The weather report for Saturday is sunny and 23 deg - so fingers crossed it stays that way.

Annual Outdoor Quilt Airing & Biggest Morning Tea

It is nearly that time of year again when we hold our Annual Outdoor Quilt Airing & Biggest Morning Tea - This SATURDAY MAY 10th 

some quilts made last weekend

Monique made my "OFF CENTRE" quilt design using the "WISHES" range of fabrics, these fabrics have been popular in this design over the past couple of months - your quilt looks great Judith also used the "WISHES" range of fabrics in my "1800" STARS" design - using the buttercup yellow as the background really changed the look of the quilt - well done Both of these patterns are available on my website at $10 per pattern.  

Quilt designs made over the past week or so

Here are a few quilt designs made in retreats in the past week or so Jan's "Drunken Paths - 2 fabric quilt was looking fabulous Cathy's version of my 1800 stars quilt was also looking great using some older and some of the new French General fabrics Both quilts can be pre cut ready to be sewn if anyone would like to order one in their own choice of colours, all of the French General fabrics are on the website. priced at $20 per metre

Le Bouquet Francais – in stock

I thought I might have a sleep in this morning seeing it is the last day of March and this whole month has been huge. But no my delivery man arrived at 6am with this delivery of "Le Bouquet Francais" by French General - I will find time this week to up load them all to my website. They will be priced at $20 per metre - I have a couple of designs that I think they would look great in so I better get sewing as well.

Store closed Saturday 29th March

Just to let everyone know that the store will be closed Saturday 29th March - as I will be teaching a class at Peak Hill in conjunction with St Stephens Anglican Church Quilt Airing.
