A quilt class and a quilt show!!

My posts seem to be getting longer and longer but it's all lovely colourful quilt stuff so surely that's a good thing. It was the Tuesday Material Obsession class yesterday These ladies are really creating amazing blocks and even finished wall hangings. Here are just a few bits of show and tell... Christina is great at mixing colours. Denuta made a wall hanging that includes lots of ric rac highlights. Helena is addicted to doing these feature fabric blocks. I'm hope she'll keep going with these wonderful Kaffe Collective fabrics.   This gorgeous shell fabric... ...became this fun block. How cute are these can-can-lady legs.  And of course every class has quilters fuel.. Thank you Tuesday ladies!!

Best time in Coffs Harbour!!!

Best time in Coffs Harbour!!!

A couple of weeks ago Mr Daisy and I filled the daisymobile with quilts and headed off up the highway to Coffs Harbour. Coffs is well known for it's Big Banana, and beautiful beaches, and while we did visit both our main reason for going there was because I'd been invited to teach some workshops at the wonderful Nesting Needles Patchwork Shop in the heart of town. I wish I'd taken a photo of the entrance where there was a table and chair set up for patient husbands but I was too busy being swept up by the happy welcome from the owner of the shop, Lisa And then I got caught in the trance of looking at fabulous fabrics. There were aisles of fabric with shelves full to the ceiling with wonderful eye candy!! Everywhere you looked!! All different styles, eras and colours. There would be the perfect fabric for every quilt in this shop, and lots of bolts to inspire new quilts! As I said in my last post, I get so caught up with
