Busy Busy Busy

Was a really busy weekend we had a get together on Saturday at Shays
there was lots of laughter,chatter & of course chocolate.
Lorraine brought show & tell, her Antique Quilts that were a recent purchase on her trip to the USA.
They were brought at Huston
First up was a 1920's Pickle Dish
 
 



 
Beautiful hand quilting




 


Her second quilt was a Feathered Star
Denise & I decided to try it out
Very snuggley..






 
Again stunning hand quilting
Lorraine was also lucky enough to get some history with it including pictures of the maker & the recipient.
Go to her blog for the full story

 
Tara showed her Mrs Billings she only has 2 borders left to go

 
Friday saw me at our Friday quilting, there has been a bit of a change in the group so we decided on a new name for a new start so let me introduce
" The Friday Fabaholics"
We were at Lorraines lovely company, good food, plenty of chatter & laughs ummm seems as if Quilt get togethers follow a similar pattern ....


 
I am now on the borders of my Flowerdale
Hope to have that done in the next couple of weeks

 
 

 
Lastly today was a Baby shower for my daughters best friend from primary school
I am making her a Quilt for when the baby arrives so just ran up a blanket
( no wadding) with a cream minky on the back.
It was a hot steamy weekend here hope you are keeping cool in Australia and warm elsewhere else

You had a busy weekend! Looks like the recipient of the baby quilt was very happy!

I've been thinking about Loz's gorgeous quilts since I saw them on Saturday. They were so beautiful.

Great to see you all on Saturday...waiting now for our next gtg.

It was great to catch up on Saturday....sounds like your entire weekend was very social. Looking forward to catching up again soon. Must try and distract Rhi from the Mrs Billings quilt - yikes!
