Pamela Jones - a trunk show to remember............

Dearest Mom
Every year the Thursday night group (of the Buderim Patchwork) have a drive to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. So throughout this year, once a month, we have been having a trunk show. We take it in turns to bring all our quilts that we have done and give a short show and tell.

We decided to ask someone who would draw a big crowd to boost our funds. When I asked Pamela if she would like to do a trunk show for us I knew that her quilts would be beautiful BUT I had no idea that she would have so MANY stunning quilts!!!!!!!
Pamela did say that we could photographs her quilts but not her - I did manage to sneak this one of her!!!!!!!!!!


Mom, it was truly a wonderful trunk show. Not only did Pamela have quilts that she had made, she also had antique quilts - what a special treat for us................ So here goes, enjoy!!!!



As it was a trunk show it was not so easy for me to take very good photos.......

My favourite - a 1930's quilt.............

...............such a variety of quilts and colours........


.....tacked ready to be quilted.......



Another lovely 1930's quilt...........



Stunning!!!!




My favourite - up close - Pamela bought her antique quilts as tops and had them hand quilted when she was living in Indonesia............



Hand appliqued and hand quilted - Baltimore quilt............

One of Jane's favourites.............

Jane's absolute favourite.........

More quilts in the next post, Mom! I need to dash off to Dragon racing!!!!!!!
