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
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
