Quilt In

Last Saturday was the annual Quilt In for the Geelong Patchwork and Quilters Guild, a good day was had by all. The speaker was Chris Serong , she talked about her quilting and showed us many of her beautiful quilts
here are a few, most are hand pieced, a couple are foundation pieced



on the right is a coverlet bought in the US and on the left the version hand pieced in 18 months by Chris Serong....just beautiful.

Stunning quilt.

Happy quilters, Margaret, Donna and yours truly 
There was an amazing sky when the Supervisor and I went walking yesterday morning.

 The Snowball and Nine patch is finally finished and checked by the Supervisor, who will not pose but will happily walk thru a photo!!
and the back using a sarong from Bali and left over batik pieces.



and another hexie diamond is done, I am happy with how they are growing.
I am off on holidays with Donna tomorrow, we are heading for Alaska and Canada, and as WiFi will be hit and miss I am not sure when the next update will happen.
But we will be enjoying ourselves.
Happy sewing.

Have a wonderful trip! If I still lived in the west, I'd be tempted to run up for a day of fun! The quilts of your speaker were marvelous. I liked them all, but especially the appliqué. That border took a mostly traditional design and gave it a modern zing. Your quilt is wonderful, but I would have a hard time deciding which side up! Great job. Beautiful sky. The water makes all the difference, too.
