Last Weekend

The weekend started bright and early and the first photo shows everyone putting the last touches in place for the opening of The Quilts in the Barn at Linda's . It was a busy, busy day with so many people streaming in to see Petra Prins Chintz quilts, books and fabrics.
We also had Mary and Joe Koval with their antique quilts and fabrics, Quiltmania books and the Quilted Crow shop from Hobart.
 
 
This was my quilt on display with a piece of 1900 Chintz fabric in the centre. I had bought it from Mary Koval a couple of years ago.

 
This was part of Mary's display.

 
Di Ford and Meghan selling Chintz fabrics surrounded by Petra's beautiful Chintz quilts.
It sold very quickly and by Sunday little was left.


One of the antique Chintz quilts on show that I really liked. The colours although faded were beautiful.

 
 
 

 
 

 
All the quilts hanging up were stunning.
 
The next photo was taken Sunday afternoon with Linda and some of her helpers. All money raised goes to Breast Cancer Research.
