A "catch-up", scones and a quilt show.......

Dearest Mom
Jane, Debbie, Letitia and went to the Caloundra Quilt show on Saturday morning..........


..................lots of quilts to see..................

..............this is my favorite one - if I can remember correctly the maker of this quilt made it for her son - it had to have "no fabric with flowers on"..........isn't it so striking?



Vaughn made a template for me to make a quilt a few years ago...........Margret asked if she could have one ..........................this is Margret's quilt - very different to mine - anyway his template has "gone forth and multiplied" - quite a few people are now making this quilt using his template..................

...................I also liked this one - I am very partial to scrappy quilts.............


..............pentagon flowers appliqued onto squares................



..................do you remember - we made a quilt like this for Jonathan years ago - I wonder if he still has it?



................Debbie and Letitia - pretending they know something about quilting - pretty quilt.......



The challenge for the show - each member was given 2 pieces of green fabric and they had t0 make a place mat - adding fabrics of their choice....................



..............this is Margret's entry - she does love blue!!!!!!!!!!!

.................isn't this quite incredible, Mom - the tree is embroidered, so are all the flowers, wall etc ......


................. a few more of the challenges.......... very diverse........


................one of the very few hand quilted quilts on the show...................pity about that....



Debbie and Letitia..................


..................interesting quilt...................

...............date scones - hmmmm, I am sure some of us only go to quilt shows for the food.......

It was so good to catch up with Margret - I don't see her often enough........pity Cathy was not there - maybe next time...............
