Quilt in

Today I spent the day at the Geelong Guild Quilt in,,, they  had 216 people there if I remember correctly,,, we had a talk from Irene Blanck and got to look at two suitcases of her beautiful quilts.
Irene talking about her quilts

and again, she was very entertaining!! 
I made the challenge block, mine was very namby pamby compared to the others
had a play with tracing a pattern in permanent pen and then colouring with crayons, then stitching the flower tops, I was happy with it and was good to try something different!! 

see what I mean, mine is very blah compared to the others...

and these too!! The black one of the far stand was chosen the winner.
I had some wonderful company today
some serious conversation happening here!! We had lots of chatting, some shopping, eating and an all round good day!!
Lynne who took the photo said to us "Watch the birdie" So Tracee did!!! Hence she is not paying attention!!! Lol!! Fuzzy photo as Lynne was laughing at Tracee!!


Wonderful companions for the day, Marg, Tracee and Donna who travelled down from Gisborne for the day.

I didn't get much sewing done as when I was straightening my block this morning I managed to drive the rotary cutter off the edge of the ruler and thru my finger!!! Ouch!!!! So not a happy camper today! So long as I hold my finger up in the air all is good!!  Hubby keeps asking me why I am pointing at him all the time!! Lol!! Better go rescue the dinner!!
Happy sewing!

Glad you took some photos! Lovely to catch up with you and the others, I had a great day! And your block is not blah, it's delicately stitched. Look after that finger - I don't think you can cook or wash or iron for at least a week.
