Quilt Show Report and a Prize

I am becoming rather well known for forgetting to take pictures at quilt shows and the Wentworth Quilters Exhibition was no different.

Sorry folks, one day I will get my act together.

It was a terrific show on what was a spectacularly windy day. Congratulations to all involved. There is so much work involved in one of these. The venue was historic Linnwood House.

I did have a little shopping spree at the stalls. Shop of the Day was Patchwork Plus from Miranda. I bought these.

Scrap Basket Surprises is a terrific book by Kim Brackett. Her blog is Magnolia Bay Quilts. All of the projects use 2 1/2 inch scrap strips or jelly rolls. I'd like to make all the projects featured. Nice work Kim.

I also picked up some reproductions fabrics for making Ann Hermes miniature quilts, some Metro Goes Au Naturel fat quarters and a couple of pincushions.

A little while ago I entered Lena's giveaway over at LeKa Quilts and I won a consolation prize. It arrived this week and it's as sweet as sweet can be.

Thank you so much Lena. I adore it!

Happy Stitching
