One thing that happened before I went away was the swap-over of my Tuesday night group's mini border-go-round.
We have been working on these for the last six months with everyone providing their centre block and maybe some fabric. It was boxed up and passed around the group in secret with various borders added each round. A maximum of 4" border size was chosen but the quilts are really not mini.
They are absolutely stunning and each one is a reflection of the owner - how well we all know each other after sewing together for @ 15 years.
Zoom in and check out the details.
|Lisa - sorry about the blurry pic in all the excitement!|
|Anni - interesting there were 3 blue and white quilts in the swap.|
|Bev - she now has to repaint the wall it was being made for.|
|Marilyn - it was such fun to choose fabrics and a design for each designated border|
|Robyn - says it all|
|Lyn - love that doily|
|And this is mine! Just perfect. Thanks guys.|
Did you see this book at the Quiilt Mania stand at the show - it's to die for if you're into antique quilts.
Lots of words and pictures to keep you drooling for hours.
I've even had a go at drawing this centre in EQ7.
