We had another trunk show at the Buderim group - Beryl had lots of lovely quilts - these were two of my favourites - scrap quilts.............my best
This Amish style quilt was also a stand out.

It's hard to believe that I still need to buy thread. I am not a fan of stranded cotton so it's sometimes hard for me to find twisted thread in the colours that I like. While shopping I did manage to find this very nice bit of linen - it's a pity that it is only a small piece.
