And no trip to Castlemaine is complete without a visit to Threadbear.

There were many more beautiful quilts on display but unfortunately my anti shake setting doesn't seem to be working on my camera and the rest of the photos were blurred.  I have listed the name of each quilt and the maker.  Hope you enjoyed the Show & Tell.

Hi Sue-Anne, we got there on Sunday and what a treat to see the Stonefields Quilt in person. The show was stunning and the Stonefields Quilt was the bonus for the day, just in time before it leaves for Ireland. You lead me to some wonderful quilts - thank you.
Also saw lots of familiar faces and a little shopping at Threadbear. Lovely day.

Great pics Sue-Anne of a really wonderful show. Your quilt was lovely. There was just so much to see with quilts of a very high standard. Looking forward to the next one.

Susan In Texas said...

Wow! What an amazing show! Your Swan Lake turned out just beautifully. All the quilts are so impressive. I struggled just to get four points on a DJ block with one little melon of reverse applique and these ladies did giant quilts of nothing but amazing applique. I am in awe of all of you! Thank you so much for sharing so many pictures of the show, and thanks again for your kind words on my blog.

Take care,
Susan in Texas

Kerry told me on the phone that you had taken some beautiful photos, so I went on line to see what I was missing out on( and you know I cannot miss out) and you certainly have done a beautiful job of the photos of the quilts. I have forwarded the photo of Helen and myself to Helen as she loves having her photo taken. xx

What terrific quilts! Your Swan Lake looks fabulous (and like it is in VERY good company!) I love them all, especially the little birds being fed the worms - people are so creative! Emergence is spectacular - so different from the rest. All that curved piecing! Wow.

Take care,
Susan in Texas
