Phew!! We did it! Liisa, Lorraine and I have been working very hard to make the Quilt and Craft Fair happen, and we can now say we have been, conquered, and are alive to tell the story!
It was so nice to see so many of our customers from The Quilters Corner, and thankyou for coming by to say hello. Having not been to the fair for a few years, it was lovely to see what is out there, and have a good look at the beautiful quilts on display.
I had a couple of new quilts on display too, and it was so rewarding to get such positive feedback on them. I had my new version of 'Pyramid Parade' up, which is with the Anna Maria Horner fabric they I have shown in previous posts. I also put together a little lap quilt using a charm pack. I was inspired by the gorgeous range of fabric called Little Apples, so also added a 'apple tree' applique to complete the picture. Quite nifty I think, and sure to find its way into a little 6 year olds room!
The main quilt that I was extremely excited to reveal however, is 'Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!'. I was inspired by the Union Jacks that seem to be very popular, and thought that I could make it a little more 'home grown'. I had a lot of fun making it (including a couple of test runs!) and was thrilled that other people loved it too! (we still have a few kits left at the shop too if anyone is interested).
