Guild Quilt-In

Spent a lovely couple of hours on Saturday at my Guild's Annual Quilt-In.  This is me with Rose on my left.

Geelong Patchwork and Quilting Guild, like most guilds in Australia host an annual Quilt-In where invitations are sent out for others to join in our fun.  It is a fun day, plenty of tea and coffee and lovely things to eat.  Usually a couple of our local quilting shops have stalls selling all the stuff us quilters just love.

We had a great speaker - Linda Steele, who talked and showed us her quilting journey and lots of her lovely award winning quilts. You can visit Linda's blog here to see some of her work.  While you're looking around the net you can also visit Geelong Guild's blog here and read about what we do and also have a look at the link and read our Monthly Newsletter.

The 'mess' in front of me is my hand sewing for the day - I was piecing some more Candied Hexagons.

I look forward to seeing some of those candied hexigans at a future Geelong GTG. I purchased Marti Mitchell templates at the AQC for a 'one day' project. Off to Canada tomorrow but will be keeping an eye on the blogs.

Glad to hear you had a great day at the Guild meeting and it must have been a wonderful class with Linda. Take care.

And the gorgeous Rose sitting next to you, I have met recently - how lucky you are to spend the day sewing with her! Cheers! Andrea
