Yesterday I went to the Geelong Quilting Guild's Annual Quilt-In. A great day with over 200 people there and some even came down from Melbourne by bus. I'm not a member of the guild, but hope to join very soon.
Of course when one goes to something like this you have to take some hand sewing with you. I have been working on a stitchery quilt for some time now, but was getting a tad tired of working the stitcheries - don't get me wrong - I love the embroideries just wanting to do something else.
This is one of those hand sewn quilts that I have wanted to do for some time now. Not sure what the pattern is actually called - I have seen it as 'Japanese Daisies' and a few other names. Anyway, a very simple, yet striking quilt and one that you can take-along with you to meetings; waiting in Dr's rooms; etc etc.
