From the Show

Some more items from the Quilt Show. The next two quilts I photographed because of the work involved making them.
 I'm not a great fan of hexagons but the border was magnificent .

This quilt with the blue looked so different from a basket quilt I had seen with cream as the setting squares. To me the border and the blue seems to drown all the beautiful little baskets.

The next two Art quilts.   Quite appealing I thought.

Now for my buys.
I stopped at Threadbear and bought some 'blues' for the Judie Rothermel quilt in this month's Quilter's Companion magazine.

I just had to buy this book by Natalie Bird to get the pink rabbit pattern. This is for the Grand daughter due in August and then I had to shop at the Quilted Crow from Tasmania to get pink felted wool to make her. Isn't she adorable.

and while I was there I couldn't resist these beauties.

A visit to the Thread Studio got me another skein of silk to finish off my 2nd knitted bag which is a larger size than the the one below that I made last year.

These should keep me busy for a while.

I love your purchases. The pink bunny will be adorable!!

I agree about the border for the baskets. It's jsut too much for the cute baskets.

Great photos Dorothy. I made a quilt from the JR book the row by row is in. Love the knitted bag - great colors. Your grand daughter will be a very lucky girl!
