quilt show…

 we spent the morning at a little quilt show
the old council chambers is the art gallery…
lunch on the veranda which was very nice…
and the sun is shinning….




                also on display was a knitted garden

and tea cosies!

And feeling uninspired…
..make a mosaic!

quilting finished…


..the quilting is finished!




I finished the machine quilting, today…now to do the binding!

I still need a lot of practice at machine quilting…but it looks

OK from a distance…

This quilt has been planned from the start for the lounge room…

so it will get plenty of use during winter!




…over the weekend I have been playing with clamshells!




…I went to Rainbow Patchwork and bought Sue Daleys, clamshell template and papers!

This row is my second attempt…wasn’t happy with the first try!

I am not sure what I am going to make with them…maybe a whole quilt

or use them in a border…but they are fun to play with!
