We had another wonderful road trip down to Melbourne yesterday to attend Quilts in the Barn. This year's exhibitor was Jo Morton and her quilts were magnificent. Here is a very small sampling of some of the quilts that were on display.
This quilt was one of the many antique quilts laid out over tables inside and outside the barn. The weather was perfect, Melbourne put on a beautiful sunny and warm Spring day and after viewing the quilts, we sat outside and enjoyed a cuppa and a piece of homemade fruit cake. We bumped into Elyte on the way out and Shirley, I got my hug!
Elyte and I.
L to R - Michelle, Elyte, me, Linda, Jan, Helen.
The Quilted Crow girls were there with their shop, selling lots of Jo Morton fabric and I came home with this piece. You know how it goes, you just have to have it.
After leaving the Barn, we made our way across the suburbs, stopping along the way at various quilt shops and these are what came home with me. I got home just after 9.30pm so a very long, but very enjoyable day.
A huge thank you to Linda and her many friends that have helped her put on this magnificent exhibition. It has definately become an annual event for us "Friday Girls".
