Very jealous

of those of you who were able to attend the exhibition of red and white quilts - it appeared to be absolutely amazing. Thank you to all those who posted photos. It was very much appreciated.

I am looking forward to attending one of our large annual quilt shows next weekend. Although not as spectacular as the red and white exhibiton, it is usually very enjoyable and inspiring.

This quilt is a project which is now towards the top of the list!

Still working away at my current projects. Nearly done with Block 2 of Lollipop trees

You can really see the curve starting to - well - curve. I'm going to have a short break from it now to finish aforementioned lollipop block 2.

Hope to have some Quilt show photos for you next time.

Until then, happy sewing,
