Thursday

was spent at the Mill in Port Arlington, helping to set up for the Bellarine Quilters Bi-annual quilt exhibition. The Mill is a very old building looked after by the National Trust, so no nails can be put in walls!! We had the official opening last night..I took a few photos but it was a bit dark, I will take some more today...I have duty today and tomorrow.
here are Chris and  Margaret with the raffle quilt

Jill talking about her beautiful quilt behind her...I think one lady made the comment "Imagine how much rubbish TV and red wine you could have enjoyed instead of sewing all these bits of fabric together!!"



I made this many years ago as part of a challenge from Donna at the Gisborne group, the challenge was BBQ...it had to be a tryptic, use black and a batik. The patterns for the birds were from the NZ Quilter magazine.

I made this bear one day with  Margaret...we had a sewing day together, Marg had made bears before and was a great instructor for me!

a walk way of quilts

not so good in the evening, the colours do not show up well

Mary's beautiful star quilt 

Jill's again...I think daylight might show it off better.
I had better get ready and report for duty!
Happy sewing.
