I have been working on the next Aussie Hero quilt. The request was for a beach theme and Ducati emblem. So I have been busy quilting away.
Happily quilting away
Of course there was some wine and popcorn too. Binding is going on.

And the Laundry bag too.

Both together..

And in the mail. Who would think that a quilt and laundry bag would fit in this small box and weigh less than 2kg.. Yep, if we keep it under 2kg it's free to post....
And ready to post. Bonus, under 2kg

Mildura show

I was asked to help out with the local show. They also wanted me to enter some items that I had made... So I gathered up some items and entered them...
Here are the results...

FNSI post a bit late

I did join in for FNSI. I just hadn't got around to doing a post.
I went to my LQS for a Girls Night In fundraiser. There were about 15 of us. It was a mystery quilt sewing night.
We did have some pre cutting and sewing and more cutting to do before class. With the preparations  done I was set...
All set up and ready to sew.

But let's break for dinner.

This is what I finished the night with.
Quilt top without borders

And a group photo. Don't they look so different.

This pattern is called tipsy turvy. It looks a bit like the disappearing 9 patch block pattern but we made ours in strip sets. We started with 1 metre of 3 different fabrics. It made a smaller quilt than I wanted. A great cot size though or lap quilt. I added 3 extra rows. I still need to add borders.
So here is the quilt top laid on the fabric I have chosen for the backing. I think it matches perfectly.

The end of my weekend

There are just a few more photos to go.

This quilt here was made by my friend. She has been asked to enter it into the Quilt exhibition ShowCase in Melbourne. Maxine is over the moon.
Keep a look out for it if you go next year.
Maxine's quilt

Then to end my day I bought these beautiful roses for my neighbour where I was spending the night.

Well the time has come for the end of the photos and to head off for the 5 hour drive home.

I hope I haven't bored you with a weeks worth of not so clear photos. They are my memories of o wonderful weekend.... I caught up with many of my friends. How wonderful.

The LIONS quilt

This quilt was designed for the LIONS club Centenary. It was to represent all that the LIONS do for the community.
I can't remember everything on there but the design and workmanship is amazing.
This was designed by a Kilmore member, Maree.
There are 10 different flowers all representing the countries involved. There was lots to look at.

The dots are the Braille. To represent sight.
