Counting down...just days to our Biennial Quilt Exhibition...

and it showed at the last meeting, gals running on high octane, busy, busy, busy. Lots of lovely quilts getting the last stitches in bindings, fussing over seams, pressing and making sure everything is schmick. This is going to be a fantastic quilt exhibition and sale, so if you are in our neck of the woods on the 23rd, 24th, or 25th June make sure you pop in, say hiya, have a cuppa, and feed your soul with the beauties within the Cottage, perhaps even buy yourself a little something to take home and pet, either one of the many crafted goodies our group will have on sale or something from one of the traders stalls.

Ailsa breathed a sigh of relief on finishing the binding of this cutie, some beautiful Japanese florals in this deciptively simple looking quilt.

Di had her version of the Mystery Quilt, freshly finished for inclusion in the Exhibition. Our group was inspired by a display at one of our local sister patchwork groups, the ladies from Mooloolah Valley Quilters had done a mystery quilt as a group, it was a visual treat to see all the different effects achieved by different colour palets and placements, we were so inspired that we elected Wendy to run our version of a Mystery Quilt to be displayed at our Exhibition, can't wait to see them all lined up.

Marie was spotted at the beginning of the quilt creation process, cutting beautiful fabrics for yet another 'William Morris' quilt.
Being the super organised and talented lass that she is, all her exhibition quilts are finished and ready to roll.

Now I have a tale to tell on this beauty, Sue W. who does beautiful needleturn with the tinsiest stitches was sorta muttering about 'I reckon this will be my last needleturn'...well I have heard those words fall from her mouth before, in fact if I remember rightly it was just before the last quilt Suz, just start planning the next one.
a closer peek at the beautiful work and the butterfly all over quilting done for Sue by Esther, her fave longarm quilter.

Karen was just finishing up her hexie panel that will be used to create...
another one of these darlings
Isn't it the cutest?
Now as is our wont, we have the Cottage display cabinet full of delicious little patchwork goodies this month to coincide with our quilt exhibition, and Karen has two more cuties in the display, so lots of visual treaties if you visit our show, oh and of course, lots of treaties for your tummy too, arvo teas and delish sangers are to be had for a very reasonable amount.
